Pursuing Justice Coast to Coast
As Canadians, we enjoy a vast country of wide-open prairies, towering forests and stunning mountain vistas. Our days are spent exploring national parks, hiking forgotten trails, outrunning rivers and biking country roads. We have the freedom to travel and appreciate this beautiful land.
However, over 40 million children, women, and men in our world lack that same freedom of movement. That's more people than the entire population of Canada. These individuals live trapped in slavery, fixed in place by the threat of violence and by justice systems too broken to provide rescue.
We believe that Canadians can be leaders in bringing an end to violence and injustice, and we challenge you to use your freedom to deliver freedom to others - all of us for all of them. We ask that you Just Move - get active and run, walk, hike or bike for justice. Set a kilometre target and a fundraising goal to provide freedom and restoration to victims of slavery and violence. Together, Canadians coast to coast can prove that we won’t stand injustice, we'll move to end it.
Decide your distance and activity: will you run 50km in one day? Swim 80 pool laps? Hike every weekend in July?
Tell people about your efforts by sharing through email, social and in conversations. Invite them to be a part of the movement by donating or joining.
