“From our position as the primary platform that enables anti-trafficking service providers and activists working across the world to come together for information sharing and learning, we are exposed to a wide array of anti-trafficking initiatives around the world. ALIGHT’s model of tech-facilitated legal services for human trafficking survivors is unique in the world.”
– Julia Macher, Director, Freedom Collaborative
In 2021, ALIGHT Executive Director Marianna Kosharovsky was honored to be named an inaugural member of Freedom Collaborative’s Global Advisory Community – a diverse group of new-generation activists and anti-trafficking professionals from around the world. In this role, she collaborates with human rights practitioners across the globe, sharing advice and methodologies and generating new ideas and approaches for the future.
Composed of dynamic young professionals from around the world who have demonstrated leadership and expertise in many areas of anti-trafficking work from civil society, grantors, agencies, government and the private sector, the role of advisory members is to bring a diversity of voices, knowledge and experience to Freedom Collaborative and the counter-exploitation community. Advisory members also give development guidance to the board and management of Freedom Collaborative to support us in building a community that will grow and evolve through future generations.
