IJM’s CEO and Founder, Gary Haugen, recently published a new book, The Locust Effect. This volume articulates the need to end violence in order to end poverty. He and co-author Victor Haugen bring decades of experience into the writing of The Locust Effect. They have witnessed repeatedly how violence demolishes efforts to help people and communities move out of poverty. True stories and abundant statistics fill the book. Learn more about this issue by reading the book and by visiting the Locust Effect website. All proceeds from the book go toward the mission of justice!
