International Justice Mission (IJM) is a worldwide organization working to end modern day slavery. Among the estimated 40 million slaves in the world, IJM has rescued over 49,000 people from slavery and violence.
Rescue is just the first step in IJM’s process. They seek to transform corrupt justice systems to better protect the poor. The transformation happens in four steps:
Find and free those oppressed in slavery.
Treat, care for, educate, and rehabilitate victims of violence.
Prosecute oppressors and bring justice to victims.
IJM works with local authorities to establish sustainable changes in corrupt justice systems.
