We know where people are enslaved
and we have a plan to rescue them.

Every day, countless people are sold into slavery, as slave owners make a profit off their misery.

International Justice Mission is a global organization with a plan to eliminate the slave trade everywhere.

Here’s a closer look at our proven plan.

Rescue Slaves

First, we find the children and adults who are victims of violence, forced labor, or sex trafficking. We then support local police in rescue operations and help meet the victims’ urgent needs, like safe housing, food, medical care, counseling, and education. We create a plan for every individual to succeed.

Work with Police to Throw Slave Owners in Jail

Second, we make sure criminals cannot continue to harm their victims. We support the police in investigating, arresting and charging slave owners with crimes. We continue to fight until slave owners are behind bars.

Put the Slave Trade out of Business for Good

Once the slaves are rescued and their owners are in jail, we go after the root that caused slavery in the first place. Most often, slave owners only operate when justice systems stop working and they know they can get away with their crimes. We work to make sure laws against slavery are enforced, making it legally and financially impossible for slave owners to stay in business.
