Be a light for justice

Our tech-based model is innovative and makes a difference. We are here to unlock a fresh start for survivors of human trafficking.

What can we do about human trafficking?

Even after survivors of human trafficking escape, many still have enduring legal problems. Debt. Identity theft. Arrests for crimes the trafficker forced them to commit.

ALIGHT has pioneered a flexible and efficient way to connect survivors to specialized, free legal services from untapped expertise in the legal community. Survivors who otherwise have limited opportunities for justice are now in the same “place” as attorneys who want to fight for their rights.

By growing the marketplace that connects survivor needs (demand) to expertise (supply) with an app platform (think: Lyft), together we can free survivors to pursue training, secure jobs and rebuild lives for themselves and their families. Join us. Break the cycle unlock a fresh start for survivors.
