While at the Rock Retreat in Ocean City, I attended a breakout session led by Brian Cress, Director of Youth Mobilization at International Justice Mission. 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 ensure immediate victim rescue and aftercare, to prosecute perpetrators and to promote functioning public justice systems.
They take literally Christ’s call “to proclaim good news to the poor” and “to proclaim freedom for the prisoners.” It was truly an eye opening experience. Have a look at their website.
