The Justice Rogues: International Justice Mission

Hey Everyone,

In case you’ve missed it, Geek Goes Rogue has a semi regular posts about people we call “The Justice Rogues”. These fine people are fighting Modern Day Slavery and Injustice around the world. You can go here for the Justice Rogue Gallery.

The next Justice Rogues are

International Justice Mission.

From their website:

International Justice Mission is a human rights agency that brings rescue to victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. IJM lawyers, investigators and aftercare professionals work with local officials to secure immediate victim rescue and aftercare, to prosecute perpetrators and to ensure that public justice systems – police, courts and laws – effectively protect the poor. 

Our Vision: To rescue thousands, protect millions and prove that justice for the poor is possible. ™

IJM’s justice professionals work in their communities in 16 field offices in Asia, Africa and Latin America to secure tangible and sustainable protection of national laws through local court systems.

IJM Collaborative Casework

IJM investigators, lawyers and social workers intervene in individual cases of abuse in partnership with state and local authorities to ensure proper support for the victim and appropriate action against the perpetrator. Such collaboration is essential to obtain convictions against individual perpetrators and to bring meaning to local laws that are meaningless if not enforced. Learn more about the work of IJM.

 

So, you know what to do, Justice Rogues. Go over to IJM’s website and support their work. Be real heroes.
