BEAVER FALLS, Pa. –Geneva College’s chapter of the International Justice Mission (IJM) is holding a series of events as part of its annual Justice Week, which will run on campus from Monday, November 10 though Sunday, November 16.
Justice Week is being spearheaded by a large assembly of student organizations. Acting on AIDS, Kairette, International Justice Mission, God Led and Student Activities are all binding together to produce an event that hopes to stimulate a larger dialogue across campus.
Students formed a Geneva chapter of IJM in 2005 and it has been growing steadily ever since. “There is a real passion for the oppressed and a strong desire to learn more about the meaning of justice amongst Geneva students,” said IJM member Rima Warren.
IJM is a human-rights agency that secures justice for victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. IJM lawyers, investigators and aftercare professionals work with local governments to ensure victim rescue, to prosecute perpetrators and to strengthen the community and civic factors that promote functioning public justice systems.
