In 2014, our Stand 4 Freedom reached even further. In 40 states and 8 countries, you told the world that slavery still exists but when we stand together, that will change. You gave one day for their everyday. We invite you to keep taking a Stand 4 Freedom with IJM each and every day. #stillstanding4freedom
Late one night, 13-year-old Griselda was grabbed by three men and violently raped at gunpoint. It was devastating for her, and introduced a new nightmare for her family.
In Guatemala, criminals prey on girls like Griselda because they don't fear real consequences. Instead, it's the impoverished families who are afraid—afraid to report the crime, and afraid they'll be all alone if they fight it.
Watch how IJM relentlessly advocated for Griselda's family, and how securing justice has changed her young life.
