International Justice Mission

About The Organization

International Justice Mission (IJM) is a human rights agency that secures justice for victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. IJM lawyers, investigators and aftercare professionals work with local officials to ensure immediate victim rescue and aftercare, to prosecute perpetrators and to promote functioning public justice systems.

IJM seeks to make public justice systems work for victims of oppression that urgently need the protection of the law.  In all of its casework, IJM has a four-fold purpose:

  1. Victim Release 
  2. Perpetrator Accountability
  3. Victim Aftercare
  4. Structural Transformation

IJM is headquartered in Washington DC, with affiliate offices in Canada, the UK, the Netherlands and Germany.  It currently has ongoing operations located in Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras, Peru, India, Cambodia, the Philippines, Thailand, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia.
