Justin Wren left a promising MMA career to live as one with the Mbuti Pygmies in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Through his foundation, Fight for the Forgotten, (fightfortheforgotten.org) and other benefactors, Wren helped the Pygmies secure their own land and drill water wells to support their community and launch sustainable farming efforts. Justin is the author of, Fight for the Forgotten: How a Mixed Martial Artist Stopped Fighting for Himself and Started Fighting for Others. Fight for the Forgotten exists to empower the most bullied people in the world, from those affected by the water crisis to the youth in our own neighborhoods and schools. Raise your hand with us to fight for others.
