IJM recently partnered with information design agency, Column Five, to promote their new book and campaign called the Locust Effect. As someone who has spent a third of my life in the developing world, I am both a huge fan of IJM in general and am glad to see a higher-level campaign focused on the impacts violence and fear of violence have on the poor around the world.

Do these stats numbers surprise or move you? If so, I recommend you consider learning more about the campaign by picking up the book.
