Although we have been busy with hurricane relief efforts, Mobilizing Medical Missions (M3) has also been busy preparing for our next M3 Conference, which is set for February 23-24, 2018, in Houston, Texas!
We are excited to announce that we have a great line-up of speakers and exhibitors, and we will continue to share information about them with you as we draw near to the conference. One of those great speakers will be our Keynote Speaker, Gary Haugen, CEO and founder of International Justice Mission (IJM).
Before founding IJM in 1997, Gary was a human rights attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice, where he focused on crimes of police misconduct. In 1994, he served as the Director of the United Nations’ investigation in the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide. In this role, he led an international team of lawyers, criminal prosecutors, law enforcement officers, and forensics experts to gather evidence that would eventually be used to bring the perpetrators of the genocide to justice. Gary received a B.A. in Social Studies from Harvard University, and a J.D. from the University of Chicago.
Gary has been recognized by the U.S. State Department as a Trafficking in Persons “Hero” – the highest honor given by the U.S. government for anti-slavery leadership. His work to protect the poor from violence has been featured by Foreign Affairs, The New York Times, the New Yorker, The Times of India, Forbes, U.S. News and World Report, the Guardian and National Public Radio, among many other outlets. He is the author of several books, including Good News About Injustice and, most recently, The Locust Effect: Why the End of Poverty Requires the End of Violence.
