MOPS International is partnering with International Justice Mission (IJM) to help moms worldwide explore ways they can seek justice in their neighborhood or around the globe.
“We know our moms have a heart for changing the world for good, so we created a small-group discussion guide to give moms a safe place to lean into the topic of seeking justice,” said Mandy Arioto, president and CEO of MOPS International, in a press release. “Thanks to IJM, the wisdom in our newest Collective, The Justice Collective, will guide small groups of women to grow from being safe to being brave. We want moms worldwide to fully embrace how they can turn seemingly ordinary acts of kindness into something extraordinary.”
MOPS Collectives are topic-based, small-group gatherings for all moms, no matter their age, the age of their children, or if they are a MOPS member. Collectives typically meet once a week for six to eight weeks to work through a small-but-mighty workbook that focuses on growth and discovery within a single topic.
IJM and MOPS International worked together to create The Justice Collective. IJM is a leading international anti-slavery organization working in 17 communities across the developing world to combat slavery, trafficking, and other forms of violence against the poor by rescuing and restoring victims, holding perpetrators accountable, and transforming broken public justice systems.
“Moms are uniquely positioned and continue to be powerful advocates against injustice,” said Melissa Russell, IJM’s chief advancement officer, in a press release. “We are excited to collaborate with MOPS to continue educating and empowering women about ways to join the growing global justice movement both in their own neighborhood and around the world.”
Anyone can purchase the Collective Participant Guides, but MOPS members can download them for free at members.mops.org. MOPS recommends each group purchase the Facilitator’s Guide, which offers keen insight into creating a safe and loving space.
