I received this email from International Justice Mission today. I'm not certain when (said) meetings would be held in our area, but I would love to organize a group to head to one. If you would like to join me, let me know. Thanks.
You can do something today to help end child trafficking.
Will you help IJM pass the Child Protection Compact Act of 2009 (HR 2737)?
IJM has expertise about what it takes to end slavery and trafficking, but the people who matter most to Members of Congress are their constituents. We need your help to urge your Members of Congress to support the Child Protection Compact Act of 2009 — groundbreaking legislation that seeks to eradicate trafficking in children in focus countries.
With your help, we will reach policymakers in all 50 states.
Here is what you can do: Commit today to attending a meeting with your Member of Congress and/or Senators in your home state/district this August and share your passion to abolish modern-day slavery.
The IJM Justice Campaigns team will schedule and coordinate these meetings for you as part of a unified month of action -- sign up online and indicate your availability.
We will guide and support you, provide you with talking points, offer trainings by phone before your meeting, and will help you connect with other advocates in your area. Take the leap and sign up today! (Please reply by July 10 — we may not be able to schedule meetings after this point.)
Schedule too full for a meeting? Urge your Member of Congress to support the Child Protection Compact Act today through the current IJM Justice Campaigns Action Alert. The CPCA holds promise for vulnerable children around the world who desperately need an ally — thank you for giving them one.
Director of Justice Campaigns
P.S. Please forward this e-mail to friends, family and colleagues who may want to attend a district meeting with you!
