The Need

At International Justice Mission (IJM), we’re leading the fight against slavery and human trafficking. As the largest anti-slavery organization in the world, our mission is to protect the poor from violence by rescuing victims, bringing the criminals to justice, restoring survivors to safety and strength, and helping local law enforcement build a safe future that lasts.

IJM has cast a vision for 2030 which involves mobilizing partnerships to scale our work of rescue and rehabilitation, expanding our global footprint, and leveraging data to effectively prove to the world that our model can end slavery. To accomplish this exciting vision, IJM has built an aggressive technology infrastructure and system transformation roadmap that will serve as the foundation for delivering that vision.

Motivated by God’s call to seek justice for the oppressed, we also believe that the way we work is as important as the results we achieve. We are a global community that cares for one another.
