This morning Andy Hein, Central South Director of Church Mobilization for International Justice Mission (IJM), spoke at my church. IJM is a human rights agency that secures justice for victims of slavery. sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression.
IJM lawyers, investigators and aftercare professionals work with local officials to secure immediate victim rescue and aftercare, to prosecute perpetrators and to ensure that public justice systems - police, courts and laws - effectively protect the poor. They are often in grave danger because they are dealing with violent, evil people who think nothing of killing those who oppose them. (www.ijm.org)
