IJM has been featured many times on NBC Dateline, New York Times, CNN, The New Yorker, Oprah, etc.

Bethany is “thrilled to have the opportunity to further invest in my passion for women’s rights, as I will be working with the issues of sex trafficking and child sexual exploitation.” Besides volunteering with Hope for Justice over the past year, Bethany volunteers with Real Escape from the Sex Trade (REST), our friends and another Seattle nonprofit. Bethany is quite the abolitionist.

However, Bethany needs our financial support! Her internship is unpaid which means she will need to raise almost $28,000 for the year. It will be great for her family, friends and abolition community to rally around her to become one-time or monthly donors. Let’s all support Bethany to bring more justice in the Philippines.
