Join multinational corporations working with IJM to eliminate forced labor slavery.

We are building a robust, public-private coalition of corporations and governments who are leveraging their power to eliminate forced labor slavery and protect communities where their supply chains operate.
THE PROBLEM:

Forced Labor Slavery in Supply Chains

IJM partners with corporations to develop tailored solutions that address forced labor

IJM knows corporations are working to meet ethical and sustainable growth and development goals—especially when it comes to combating forced labor and protecting vulnerable people from exploitation. But businesses cannot solve this crisis alone.

We have seen that investing in sustainable solutions, like government ownership of enforcing anti-trafficking and worker protection laws, as well as the prosecution of human trafficking and slavery, can reduce forced labor risk by changing the entire ecosystem in which they operate.

We believe that keeping perpetrators accountable is necessary to eliminate the crime. We also know that being among the first to try solving complicated problems can be difficult, but your leadership in standing up for the dignity and safety of workers today will bring about a safer, more secure world for workers and their families for generations to come.

THE SOLUTION:

Trusted Expertise and Tailored Response

International Justice Mission has more than 20 years of experience transforming broken justice systems around the world, and we are ready to work with you to build positive, fruitful relationships with host governments to strengthen worker protections and accountability for bad actors as well as building rule of law and access to justice in the communities where your supply chain operations are located.

Corporations can have a significant impact by using their influence with governments to prioritize investments in law enforcement and survivor services that end impunity for forced labor exploiters and shrinks the space for abuse. When a justice system is functioning, it protects everyone and sets the standard for ethical working conditions in a way that corporations alone cannot.

IJM’s model strengthens justice systems to strengthen the rule of law, which deters criminals and protects workers. We have seen time and again that there is no substitute for the local government response when attempting to address criminal activity. By tailoring our approach to your needs, we will make sure you have the connections and context to build strong partnerships with local and national governments in order to bring effective change where it is needed most.
