Dear  Marilyn,

Our largest anti-slavery operation just ended: You helped rescue 564 children, women and men from a massive brick factory in India.

Because of you, these families won’t wake up as slaves today.

 As we were touring around India, the smoke stakes of the brick factories dot the landscape wherever we looked. I am so thankful that IJM is working with the Indian government to free the slaves, help them get readjusted to  freedom, and work to bring the traffickers to justice. 

Dear  Marilyn,

Our largest anti-slavery operation just ended: You helped rescue 564 children, women and men from a massive brick factory in India.

Because of you, these families won’t wake up as slaves today.

 

You might already know about this brick kiln. We’ve been there before. In 2011, we helped rescue more than 500 people from the same sprawling factory.

The fact that the owner re-opened his factory with hundreds more slaves is unacceptable.It highlights why traffickers cannot remain free. Thankfully, the government leaders who led this week’s operation arrested six suspects, including the owner. (Read more.Click here for more details and testimonials!

Because of you, we’ll keep working on this case to see justice done. We’ll help the 564 survivors to return home, find work, go back to school and rediscover their dreams.

We view our Freedom Partners like our frontline workers—you are the reason slavery will end.

Thank you,

Sean Litton
Senior Vice President of Justice Operations
