Pamela Jensen
International Justice Mission

Pam Jensen serves as International Justice Mission (IJM) Director of Strategic Partnerships for the Midwest and is based in Chicago.  IJM was established in 1997 to address violence in developing countries.  Poverty alleviation cannot be attained without rule of law.  Common everyday violence afflicts far more of the global poor on a much larger scale and consistently frustrates and blocks their climb out of poverty.  IJM has 17 field offices and works with local investigators to rescue victims of violence, support survivors, strengthen law enforcement, and bring violent criminals to justice. 

Pam meets with supporters across the Midwest to provide opportunities for deeper engagement in the work of justice and frequently travels to speak at seminars, conferences and other settings to share IJM’s work around the world.  Before joining IJM, Pam was a staff member at the Presbyterian Church USA and was part of a new initiative to generate awareness and support for the denomination’s mission co-workers, and for 10 years was a sales and marketing executive at Comcast Networks. She currently serves as the President of the Board for Partners for Just Trade, an organization working to create fair trade justice.

Pam graduated with an MPA from American University and B.A. in Economics and Political Science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She and her husband, Rich, and their daughter, live in Lake Barrington, IL.
