One race. One mission.
One step at a time.
Until all are free.

Justice for survivors of exploitation is a journey that requires hard work, commitment, endurance, and a passionate, supportive community that refuses to quit.

On Saturday, April 27, 2024, IJM and Dressember are joining forces to lace up and put our words into action by running the Race to Restore.

Join supporters from across the country who are passionate about justice. Together, we will show up in a tangible way to impact survivors everywhere who need support. Whether you want to walk, jog, run, bike, hike or sprint across the finish line, every step you take helps encourage a survivor on their journey towards flourishing in health, safety and freedom.

This is a VIRTUAL event – which means you can participate from anywhere!
