JUSTICE IS OUR MIDDLE NAME

We’re International Justice Mission and we believe that justice for the poor is possible.

We are a global organization that protects the poor from violence in the developing world.

Our global team includes hundreds of lawyers, investigators, social workers, community activists and other professionals at work in nearly 20 communities.

OUR WORK HAPPENS BY:

  • RESCUING
    VICTIMS

    Get them out of the place
    where they’re in danger

  • BRINGING CRIMINALS
    TO JUSTICE

    Hold slave-owners, traffickers,
    rapists and criminals
    accountable in court

  • RESTORING
    SURVIVORS

    Give them the support
    and tools they need to
    heal and thrive

  • STRENGTHENING
    JUSTICE SYSTEMS

    Stop violence before it starts
    by helping strengthen
    the local justice system

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

WE SERVE VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE
THROUGHOUT THE DEVELOPING WORLD.

WE'RE RELENTLESS

For poor people in the developing world, violence is relentless so we’re committed to be even more relentless.

We rescue individuals, one by one. That’s where our work starts. But that's not where it ends.

We’re also stopping the violence before it starts by helping local law enforcement, courts and communities sustainably protect vulnerable people.

AND WE'RE SEEING
PROOF THAT
CHANGE IS POSSIBLE

So far, we’ve rescued more than 23,000 people from violence and oppression. And, today, our work is helping to protect 21 million people globally from violence.

"We would think, 'When are we going to go? If there is a God, won't he open his eyes and come here in the form of a man and bring us freedom?'"

–Raman, freed from slavery

"It is important for my family and I to know that these men that hurt me are in jail, so that other children don't suffer what I suffered."

– Griselda, survivor of sexual violence

"I want to help rescue others like how I was rescued."

–Sani,* a brave survivor of sex trafficking who helped rescue other girls who were still trapped in a Mumbai brothel

WHAT ARE OTHERS SAYING?

Highlighted as one of 10 non-profits "making a difference" by U.S. News and World Report, IJM's effective model has been recognized by the U.S. State Department, the World Economic Forum and leaders around the globe, as well as featured by Forbes, Foreign Affairs, The Guardian, The New York Times, The Phnom Penh Post, The Times of India, National Public Radio and CNN, among many other outlets.

  • "Independent evaluation has demonstrated that after four years of IJM partnership with local law enforcement in Cebu, Philippines, the availability of minors for sex decreased by a stunning 79%."

    —U.S. State Department Trafficking in Persons Report 2012

  • "IJM understands that the threat of violence (and lack of prosecution and justice) cripples the world’s poor... They are lawyers, former investigators and police officers, psychologists, social workers, church and community educators, and administrators. They are heroes and there is no other way to say it."

    -Jen Hatmaker, blogger and author, 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess

  • "International Justice Mission is a modern-day abolitionist movement of brilliant lawyers working with government leaders and civil authorities around the world to strike at the heart of the injustice of slavery. They are setting people free. And they are providing opportunities for you and I to get involved."

    – Donald Miller, author, Blue Like Jazz

WHAT MAKES IT ALL POSSIBLE? YOU.

One organization can’t stop violence against the poor. A global movement can.

We’re inspired every day by the students, parents, leaders and families who have made justice their mission. From students to senators, pastors to police officers– we’re privileged to support, learn from and work alongside people like you to build this movement.
