What We Do
Stop human trafficking
Over 40 million people live in modern-day slavery because of human trafficking*. We train and place monitors at transit points to identify and stop trafficking as it is occurring, BEFORE people are exploited. To date, we've intercepted over 24,000 individuals to prevent them from being trafficked.

Help put traffickers in jail
Since we intervene as the crime of trafficking occurs, we’re able to collect immensely valuable data on traffickers and their networks. Through our data analysis and investigations, we've helped authorities arrest over 950 suspects in connection with our anti-trafficking work. Read more here.

Our Values Guide How We Work
Love Justice is driven by three biblical core values that shape every program and management decision we make.
Be the Kingdom
All our work is done through local churches. We strive to live our faith in Jesus Christ and His gospel by following the directives of the New Testament in how we live, work, and relate to one another.
Help Those Who Need It Most
Jesus said, "Whatever you do for the least of these, you do for me." In response to this teaching, our goal is to find and help the most desperate and needy people in the world.
Do Much with Little
We strive to find and implement the strategies that make the greatest possible difference in the lives of as many people as possible with the limited resources we have been entrusted with.
