SLAVERY DOESN'T EXIST TODAY

International Justice Mission is the largest international anti-slavery organization. But right now, there are still more than 45 million people who are being bought, sold, and used against their will. And if solving this problem seems too big for IJM to handle alone, you’re right.

THAT'S WHY WE NEED YOU

It may seem like an impossible dream, but we’ve seen time and time again that justice for the poor is possible when we boldly step into the fight. At IJM, we wholeheartedly believe that if God’s people can join together, we WILL see a change.

Together, we relentlessly search for each one of these lives. And when we help free one, we stay with that survivor until they are healed—until they are free. And then we keep searching.

HOST A FREEDOM SUNDAY

“Now Is the Time to Sound the Alarm”

Gary Haugen, IJM CEO

“Our church recognizes the tremendous issue slavery continues to be around the globe, and is so grateful to be partnering with IJM to end it. We are planning to participate in ‘Freedom Sunday’ this fall as a way to bring the issue to the forefront of our people, and our communities' awareness. If the Body of Christ continues to come together on this, supporting the efforts and expertise of IJM, we believe we can see human slavery in all of its forms brought to an end.”

Aaron Brockett Lead Pastor, Traders Point Christian Church (Indianapolis, IN)

“Each day, Jesus hears the desperate cries of the enslaved; and each day, Jesus calls us, His church, to supply His answer. We're partnering with IJM and Freedom Sunday because there's no greater joy than being part of breaking chains in Jesus' name!”

Steve Treash Senior Pastor, Black Rock Church (Fairfield, CT)
