Guest Presentation: The Pursuit of Justice: Finding Courage Amidst the Chaos of Human Rights Abuses

Author: Sharon Cohn Wu, guest speaker
The January Series of Calvin College
Posted on: Jun 11, 2009

This guest presentation was given as part of the January Series 2009 of Calvin College.
The enormity of injustice against the poor can overwhelm us—27 million slaves, millions sexually abused, hundreds of thousands illegally detained and tortured. Our impulse may be to run far from it. But the experiences of those who suffer these abuses and those who fight them can change our trajectory.

Sharon Cohn Wu serves as Senior Vice President of Justice Operations for International Justice Mission. IJM is an international human rights agency that rescues victims of violence, sexual exploitation, slavery and oppression. Based on referrals of abuse received from relief and development organizations, IJM conducts professional investigations of the abuses and mobilizes intervention on behalf of the victims.
