International Justice Mission is a global human rights organization that seeks to protect the poor from violence throughout the developing world. IJM partners with local authorities to rescue victims of violence, bring criminals to justice, restore survivors, and strengthen justice systems. Specifically, they work on combating slavery, sex trafficking, sexual violence, police brutality, property grabbing, and citizen rights abuse.
Their global team includes hundreds of lawyers, investigators, social workers, community activists, and other professionals at work in nearly 20 communities. In 2010, US News & World Report ranked IJM 1 out 10 “service groups that are making a difference.”
The Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law completes legal projects on behalf of IJM, particularly for their work in East Africa.
