Renee & Russ Brown Serve as Chairs of 2016 IJM Dallas Benefit Dinner
April 20, 2016 by Brown Fox
An estimated 36 million people are currently held in slavery. Globally, 4 billion people face lawlessness on a daily basis. International Justice Mission (IJM) runs headfirst into the battle against injustice, seeking the rescue and freedom of thousands and the protection of millions. IJM assists local authorities to find those suffering from violence and oppression; fights to put rapists, slave owners, and traffickers in jail; restores victims through trauma therapy and counseling; and works to strengthen justice systems. Most importantly, IJM gets results. For example, after four years of work in Cebu, Philippines, outside auditors concluded that the availability of children for commercial sex dropped 79%.
Brown Fox Partner Russ Brown has been working alongside IJM for close to a decade, training investigators and lawyers in Asia; performing research for offices in Africa and India; hosting speakers in Dallas from IJM’s offices in Rwanda, Dominican Republic, and Washington, DC; and fundraising locally in Dallas.

In less than two weeks over 1,000 friends will come together in downtown Dallas to raise money for this essential fight against injustice. Brown Fox is proud to help sponsor this important evening, with Russ and Renee chairing the event.
