IJM seeks to make public justice systems work for victims of abuse and oppression who urgently need the protection of the law. {source} They help children, woman and men from every corner of the world to escape from forced slavery of all kinds and provide opportunity for a better life while also bringing justice to their oppressors. 

Campaign 1:17 seeks to bring awareness of modern day slavery to people, and raise funds for IJM to continue their work.

We are wearing dresses every day this month to be noticed so we can tell people that millions of people deserve justice.
