IJM was started in 1997 by a group of lawyers, human rights professionals and public officials to work to reprimand oppressors who have caused suffering in 12 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. IJM works with individual cases to bring justice to sufferers through local court systems.
The Auburn chapter of IJM was founded this year and is looking forward to its first fundraising event. The Jog for
Justice is 3.1 miles starting at the Mell Street entrance of the Ralph B. Draughon Library and continues around
campus. There are prizes for the first three male and female runners.
Registration is $10 before hand, which includes a t-shirt, and $15 the day of the race. For registration
