International Justice Mission

Today there are more slaves in the world than at any other time in history: 27 million men, women, and children stripped of their rights as human beings. Human trafficking, a form of modern-day slavery, doesn’t involve chains or locks, but controls people providing labor services against their will or without pay, or engaging in commercial sex. Most of the time these people are treated like property, and have no freedom.

Highland Park Pres partners with International Justice Mission because we serve a God of justice, who calls us to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with Him. In order to walk with God, we must pursue justice out of merciful love and compassion, helping those who are powerless to help themselves.
