Be a light for justice
ALIGHT helps remove legal barriers to help human trafficking survivors and their children rejoin our community.
Join us in helping survivors to successfully gain independence and rebuild their lives in our community.
Even after survivors of human trafficking escape, many still have enduring legal problems. Debt. Identity theft. Arrests for crimes they were forced to commit by their trafficker.
For every $1 donated, a survivor directly receives ~$3 in legal value.
Data as of January 2024.
“Survivor's multi-faceted legal needs are a barrier to their recovery. I’ve heard nothing but good things from survivors about ALIGHT in survivor community groups. As soon as survivors request legal services, ALIGHT is the first service that is recommended.”Megan LundstromSurvivor Leader and Director to the Polaris Resilience Fund, 2024
This report was co-published by Avery and the NSL Collective in July 2021 based on the Avery research team’s extensive outreach to 550 organizations from across the country that advertise their legal services to sex trafficking survivors. The report demonstrated that direct legal representation is concentrated in high density urban areas, essentially making most of the U.S. a legal desert. ALIGHT is one of 16 organizations in the entire country that could confirm it provides legal services focused on human trafficking survivors.
The Legal Deserts Report was co-published by the Avery Center and the NSL Collective.
