International Justice Mission (IJM) is the largest anti-human trafficking organization in the world. IJM is faith based and the team has a firm reliance on prayer and weaving God’s heart for justice into the very fiber of the organization. Since IJM’s beginnings in 1997 the teams across the world have brought rescue to more than 49,000 slaves. IJM works in 18 communities on 7 different casework types from sex trafficking to bonded labor.  

IJM’s model is set up to provide transformation in the justice systems where they work. The team works with the government to empower police to conduct rescue operations. During the rescue operations there are two main goals rescue slaves and arrest the perpetrators of the crimes. Once the perpetrators are arrested IJM works the cases through the local justice system to prove that justice for the poor is possible. All of this is done while the team provides world class aftercare to those who have been rescued. When the crimes that were once committed with impunity have repercussions IJM has found that the cycle of slavery and injustice plummets often by over 80% in target areas. 

If you would like to learn more about how to engage in ending slavery in our lifetime please check out ijm.org or feel free to contact Wayne Gann who is the IJM Twin Cities Volunteer Church Coordinator at wgann@ijmvolunteers.org
