BHR CHARITY PARTNER
BHR Charity Partner:
International Justice Mission
Impact Business Law partners with International Justice Mission, the largest anti-slavery organization in the world. IJM’s goal is to end slavery in our lifetime. IJM is working towards this audacious goal by rescuing victims, bringing criminals to justice, restoring survivors, and strengthening justice systems around the world. In addition to forced labour slavery, which is Impact Business Law’s primary focus, IJM works in the areas of sex trafficking (including the online sexual exploitation of children), general sexual violence against children, citizenship rights abuse, police abuse of power, and land theft.
50 million people were living in modern slavery in 2021 – 10 million more than in 2021. 28 million were in forced labour. 86% of forced labour is found in the private sector – 23% in forced commercial sexual exploitation and 63% in other sectors.
