IJM Launches First-Ever Pro-Athlete and Influencer Sweepstakes

Wednesday, March 24, 2021, WASHINGTON, D.C. — International Justice Mission (IJM) partners with professional athletes, musical artist partners, and other influencers to launch the first-ever “All In For Freedom” sweepstakes March 29 through April 23, 2021. This group is joining together with IJM to raise crucial awareness and funds for people suffering in slavery and violence around the world.

As the world recently marked one-year of COVID-19 lockdown, the work of rescuing people and transforming justice systems has not stopped, but it has adapted to the new global pandemic environment. As IJM adapted, their athlete and influencer partners also came together to brainstorm how to creatively use their platforms to ensure the most vulnerable are protected – the result: the “All In For Freedom” sweepstakes. This sweepstakes creatively engages new people and is critical for raising the necessary resources to continue working with local governments to rescue thousands from slavery and situations of abuse. A robust list of the prizes and contributions below:
