ALIGHT helps remove legal barriers to help human trafficking survivors and their children rejoin our community.

About ALIGHT

ALIGHT connects the children, women and men who have suffered human trafficking to free legal help at a critical point in their recovery. To help survivors finally escape the exploitation cycle, ALIGHT matches them to the right attorney at the right time enabling them to overcome legal problems that are insurmountable alone.

Join us in helping survivors to successfully gain independence and rebuild their lives in our community.

What can we do together about human trafficking?

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.

Words cannot express my gratitude for ALIGHT and pairing me with an amazing attorney at Recht Kornfeld PC in Denver to handle my conviction here in Colorado. Thank you to our allies who continue to listen, believe, and support survivors like me who are on an ongoing journey to freedom.

“Human rights that exist only in theory are nothing more than mirages in a desolate desert.”

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
