International Justice Mission

"For I, the LORD, love justice." (Isaiah 61:8)

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.

An IJM Campus Chapter is a group of students concerned about issues of injustice who desire to work together as advocates for the oppressed in a world of suffering. They partner with IJM in three ways:

  1. Raising their voices on behalf of victims of injustice through prayer and advocacy.
  2. Raising awareness on their campus and in their community of the reality of oppression in our world.
  3. Raising support to enable IJM to rescue more victims of oppression.

These groups come in all different shapes and sizes, as the students on each college campus are uniquely suited to do different things. Whatever your group looks like, know that showing up on behalf of the victims of abuse and oppression is the most important step you can take.

The Baylor Chapter of IJM is an organization that began in 2008. Students meet weekly on Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m. on the third floor of the SUB in the Claypool Room.
