What is Bridges4Justice?
Biblical justice originates in the heart of God. See Psalm 89:14; Micah 6:8, and Zachariah 7:9. God’s people care about the oppressed and those who are trafficked, but often lack awareness and opportunity to get involved. Bridges4Justice bridges that gap by providing practical opportunities to encourage, equip, empower and engage in God’s work of justice in our broken world.
The vision for Bridges4Justice began with a group of 16 followers of Christ who traveled together to Asia in 2012 to learn more about trafficking . They came back committed to do more together to engage in the work of anti-trafficking and Biblical justice and to provide practical opportunities for others to also be involved.
At B4J we are all about “Transforming communities one life at a time.” We accomplish this mission through four strategic initiatives which we call our four "E's":
Equip, Empower, Encourage, Engage.

Statement of Faith
Our Statement of Faith has roots in ancient Christian tradition and more recent proclamations to make Jesus known throughout the world.
Bridges4Justice partners with like-minded organizations and freedom businesses owned and operated by local believers around the globe.
Bridges4Justice also partners with a network of individuals and churches in the States who market products, give for the needs, and use their skills to make a difference on the frontlines.
B4J places a high value on relationships and on teams. As we bring our skills, gifts, and expertise together we are stronger and more effective in the work of Biblical justice. God has brought together people with differing skills, backgrounds, and expertise to serve on the board and lead Bridges4Justice. Bridges4Justice also has a great advisory team and several other teams working together. Click here to read more about the team.
Victims flow from economically depressed “source areas” to be sold as sex workers, domestic slaves, farm workers, and factory workers.
Overwhelming poverty and a desperate lack of economic opportunity are major “push factors” creating vulnerability that plays into the schemes of the traffickers.
Bridges4Justice partners to break this cycle and bring transformation to communities one life at a time.
