Worldwide, an estimated 12 million people hold no citizenship of any kind.
Approximately 20% of these people live in Thailand. Hill tribe members in particular are refused their rightful Thai citizenship. Without it, they live without the protection of the law and this makes them vulnerable to violence and exploitation.
With your support, IJM is able to step in and advocate for the stateless people of Thailand so that they receive the recognition they deserve: citizenship, and a passport to freedom.
Sean Litton, IJM President
Sean Litton serves as President of International Justice Mission. Sean joined IJM in 2000 as the first Field Office Director in Manila, the Philippines, where he built and led a team of lawyers, social workers, and investigators rescuing and defending children who had been raped and trafficked for sex. He then moved to Thailand to lead IJM’s team there in combating sex trafficking of children. Sean has since served IJM in increasingly senior leadership capacities as Director of Operations for Southeast Asia, Senior Vice President of Justice Operations, and, most recently, Chief Administrative Officer.
