IJM Earns Positive Response from President Obama

 
Earlier this year, some of us  joined more than 73,000 Americans in signing a petition asking President Obama to take four key actions to combat slavery. Yesterday, he responded to you, announcing an Executive Order on one of the four requests made to him - officially calling for new standards that will address the terrible crime of slavery within U.S. government contracting.
In his speech, President Obama also highlighted IJM's work - honoring the advocates who "dedicate their lives and at times risk their lives to liberate victims and help them recover," and sharing the conviction that IJM and other groups, "like the great abolitionists before them, are truly doing the Lord's work." Thank you for making this movement possible.
