Thank you.

Justice System Transformation

Think of the justice system as a pipeline. In broken systems the poor are not safe. The UN estimates that nearly 4 billion people live outside of the protection of the law.

Justice

IJM works within these fractured systems, crawling through the pipeline with case after case, identifying leaks, clogs and disconnects. We then work collaboratively with stakeholders to strengthen the entire system so that it is sustainable and effective.
