5 Weeks & 1800 Miles for Freedom
27 million slaves in the world today.
We must do something.
The alternative is too horrific.
Stop Injustice: 5 Weeks for Freedom is a major awareness and advocacy campaign to support International Justice Mission’s work and give a voice to victims of modern-day slavery and other forms of injustice. A team of ordinary people is giving up 5 weeks to cycle 1800 miles of the Underground Railroad – a route that reminds us that change happens when ordinary people do what they can to stop injustice, that the evil of slavery has been defeated once, and that, together, we can do it again.

Over the 5 weeks of the campaign – June 28 to July 31, every major city along the tour route will host events featuring music, celebrities, the tour riders and more, to raise awareness of modern-day slavery and other forms of violent oppression – and empower people to take action to stop injustice.
The cycling tour is led by Venture Expeditions, a non-profit organization committed to mobilizing support for humanitarian work through major cycling and climbing tours.
Everyday people can make a difference in the lives of those experiencing the horrors of modern-day slavery. This campaign models for us how one group of individuals, when partnering with a proven organization like IJM, can bring much good into our world. Lives will be rescued and restored because of campaigns like these.
We can do something.
The following is an introductory video to the great work of IJM, an organization that I personally support.
