#IJMSummit17 Tweet-in Day
This Tuesday, IJM advocates from across the country are gathering together in Washington as modern-day abolitionists to advocate against modern-day slavery. You can amplify their voices by storming the digital halls of power on Twitter with us.
Research has shown that it takes as little as 10 tweets to bring an issue on the radar of Congressional staff. Let’s ensure Congress takes notice, and hears that now is the time to end slavery for good.
Join us @FreedomCommons on Twitter and add your voice by tweeting your senators and representative.

Last July, you stood with us when IJM investigator and human rights lawyer, Willie Kimani, and two friends, Joseph Muiruri and Josephat Mwenda, were abducted and murdered. You helped spark a global outcry for #JusticeinKenya and an end of police abuse of power through this ongoing petition.
Today, we’re sharing a few thoughts on why you should be with us at the 2017 Advocacy Summit, from the perspective of our friend and IJM advocate Jordie Beuch.
We have a small confession to make: we owe you a few introductions. Over the past few months, we’ve welcomed three new colleagues to the Advocacy & Mobilization team. You may find them in your city, on your campus, or in your inbox and we think it’s time you’re introduced.
Today, we’re doing a Q&A with Joash Thomas, Lauranne Boyd, and Dan Mackett. Amongst other topics, you’ll hear a glimpse of what uniquely brought them to this work and what’s exciting them about the season ahead.
