>ORG: International Justice Mission

>For my first posting, I thought it would be appropriate to highlight IJM. As far as I know, they are the pioneering Christian organization working for justice on our planet.

What is IJM?

Following the biblical command to “seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan and plead for the widow” (Isaiah 1:17), International Justice Mission (IJM) is a Christian human rights ministry that helps people suffering injustice and oppression who cannot rely on local authorities for relief. IJM documents and monitors conditions of abuse and oppression, educates the church and the public about the abuses, and mobilizes intervention on behalf of the victims. IJM advocates get involved in cases of bonded child slavery, forced prostitution and sex trafficking, illegal detention, land seizure, and government misconduct.

Are any SDAs active with IJM? I don’t know. If you know of people, let me know. They need our support.

Are there any SDA groups or organizations like this? Do we have a church sponsored or independent ministry of justice? Feel free to share what you know.

Peace & Justice for All.
