Every day, countless people are sold into slavery, as slave owners make a profit off their misery.
International Justice Mission is a global organisation with a plan to eliminate the slave trade everywhere.
We strengthen justice systems
We collaborate with justice system and community leaders to respond effectively to violence.
We rescue and restore victims
We partner with local authorities to rescue individual victims of violence and restore survivors to safety and stability.
We bring criminals to justice
We work with justice system officials to ensure that criminals are held accountable, stopping the cycle of violence and deterring criminals.
We scale demand for protection
We equip champions to advocate for protection as an essential and tangible future for everyone.
We’re working all around the world to free people trapped in slavery.
We don’t stop there. We protect the poor against brutal violence in the developing world:

Our proven Justice System Transformation model
Think of the justice system as a pipeline. In broken systems the poor are not safe. The UN estimates that nearly 4 billion people live outside of the protection of the law. Many justice systems are broken, corrupt, under-resourced, and overworked.
Rescue is not only possible. It's happening.
