ADVOCATING FOR JUSTICE
Congress, federal agencies and other policymakers can advance bipartisan funding and policy initiatives that disrupt cycles of modern slavery, exploitation and violence.
As a leader in the global fight against trafficking and violence, IJM brings an inside perspective to the challenges faced by governments, corporations and civil society in addressing these abuses. Our local teams in 17 countries partner with government and community leaders to rescue victims, restrain violent offenders and support survivors. The U.S. policy and advocacy team engages policymakers and their staff to share innovative solutions and proven intervention methods to address violence and exploitation that help inform policy and funding choices.
