International Justice Mission rep to speak at Milligan
Milligan College, Tenn. (Nov. 9, 2007) – International Justice Mission’s student ministries program manager, Cheryl Noble, will speak at Milligan College on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 11 a.m.
International Justice Mission is a human rights organization that rescues victims of violence, sexual exploitation, slavery and oppression. IJM documents and monitors conditions of abuse and oppression, educates the church and public about the abuses, and mobilizes intervention on behalf of victims.
A multi-national team of law enforcement professionals and a highly qualified legal staff conduct criminal investigations and collect evidence to rescue victims and bring perpetrators to justice. The work of IJM has been featured by the “Today Show, “Dateline NBC,” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” as well as in Forbes Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and other media outlets.
Noble regularly speaks at venues across the United States furthering IJM’s goal to act as an advocate for the poor that have been oppressed, treated unjustly and suffered under the hand of someone more powerful. She has traveled extensively in Latin America, Europe and India, where she has seen the suffering of the oppressed and developed a deep passion for mobilizing those who are the future advocates for victims of injustice. Through her personal experience, she knows first-hand the importance of educating, equipping and providing opportunities for young people to be actively involved in great works of service in the world.
