Global Justice 2013 Interns Serving Around the World

This year, the Center for Global Justice’s 20 interns serve 19 organizations around the world. The organizations they support are as nearby as the Naval Criminal Investigative Service in Norfolk, Va., and as far away as the Women’s Hope Center in Seoul, South Korea. Their causes range from human trafficking to religious freedom. Regardless where the 2013 Center for Global Justice Interns serve, their work is united by a common goal: to defend those who cannot defend themselves.
