Welcome to The Freedom Commons! In a time when over 40 million men, women and children around the world are living in slavery and the reality of everyday violence pervades the lives of the poorest people, this site exists as a gathering ground for those who want to take action in solidarity with the oppressed. In other words, this site exists for people like you: people of good will, who are not content simply to know the bad news, but who want to do what they can to bring about change.
The Freedom Commons is a hub for those of us who want to do our part—a place to gather, to act and to further the fight for freedom and justice. We are so glad you’re here! We hope you join this community and International Justice Mission as we take action to combat slavery and protect the poor from everyday violence around the world.
