INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE MISSION
International Justice Mission helps people suffering injustice and oppression who cannot rely on local authorities for relief. The agency documents and monitors conditions of abuse and oppression, educates the church and public about the abuses, and mobilizes intervention on behalf of the victims. IJM’s site also has a great page of links to other justice-related ministries and resources.

SHARED HOPE INTERNATIONAL
Shared Hope International’s prevention programs examine and document the marketplaces of victimization around the world, work to enhance international awareness about conditions of modern day sexual slavery, and build international alliances to combat sex trafficking.

I’ve lived through the 1992 Rodney King riots, the 1996 welfare-reform bill, and the rise of compassionate conservatism. And I’ve lived through a small revolution in how Christians think about justice.
