IJM Twin Cities Benefit!
I just read this great blog about the IJM Benefit in Dallas by Abolitionist JB, and it made me excited to gather together with supporters here in the Twin Cities NEXT WEEK on May 17th for our annual IJM Benefit! JB's writes a great summary of Gary's message on the long-suffering nature of justice - "we just don't go away... ever." It is true that our friends at IJM work for endless hours to secure convictions and rescues, but there are also the more swift and miraculous results of that long work, like the recent unexpected rescue of 522 bonded slaves in Chennai, India. Local officials and IJM staff went to rescue one man, but discovered 143 families longing for freedom. This is the largest rescue in IJM's history! In the Twin Cities we will be hearing from Sharon Cohn-Wu, one of the best communicators I have ever met. If you haven't signed up, please join us! More information HERE.
