Pro Bono Attorneys – Join the ALIGHT National Network!

Founded in 2015, ALIGHT uses a mobile app (think: Lyft) to connect human trafficking survivors to pro bono legal services. Survivors with various legal needs (e.g. wage theft, child custody, criminal records) are matched with vetted attorneys on discrete matters in their areas of expertise.

If you are a licensed attorney in the U.S. and interested in representing human trafficking survivors pro bono in one of the 20+ legal areas that we cover, get in touch!
