Online Action Center Mobilizes Anti-Slavery Movement

International Justice Mission (IJM), a human rights agency that brings rescue for victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression, launched The Freedom Commons, an online destination for anti-slavery advocates to combat modern-day slavery and human trafficking.

The Freedom Commons features:

  • A first-of-its-kind congressional scorecard to equip everyday Americans to track and hold members of Congress accountable for their anti-slavery records
  • Promotion of strong anti-trafficking legislation at the federal and state level by engaging in action-based campaigns
  • Connection with others locally and nationally
“Advocates absolutely make a difference—especially today when individuals are equipped with more online and offline tools than ever to create social demand and build political will,” said Holly Burkhalter, vice president of government relations at International Justice Mission. “The Freedom Commons will empower advocates further – to learn more about what their own policymakers are doing about slavery so they can get engaged with tangible action and connect with like-minded abolitionists locally.”
