Event description

Description

Empower. Liberate. Transform.

Lead the fight against slavery.

Join International Justice Mission, the world's largest anti-slavery organisation, on Thursday 25 October for the Melbourne Benefit Dinner.

In the last 20 years, IJM has partnered with local authorities to rescue more than 45,000 people, arrest over 3,500 suspected slave owners and other criminals, and provided training to more than 55,000 local leaders to protect the poor and vulnerable.

IJM’s model has been independently proven to work and has brought hope and freedom to millions.

But the fight continues. Today we still see tens of thousands of the most vulnerable people fall prey to exploitation by slave owners, traffickers, and others who continue to operate outside the law without consequence.

IJM’s Melbourne Benefit Dinner is your opportunity to lead the fight against modern slavery.

Our vision is to gather leaders of influence to empower others through generosity to liberate children, women and men from slavery, and ultimately transform justice systems so they effectively protect the poor from violence

Come together with a group of like-minded Australians who will make a lasting contribution towards a future without modern slavery.

Click on the green TICKETS button to purchase a table of six or individual tickets (ticket & table purchases are not tax-deductible).
