We envision a world where anti-trafficking professionals have the resources to achieve justice and restitution for victims of trafficking.
Our mission is to enable anti-trafficking advocates and legal providers to connect across borders and build solutions together.
ALIGHT works at the intersection of law, technology and human trafficking to offer tools that deliver justice to victims and survivors of human trafficking – faster. With diverse legal needs, high levels of vulnerability and difficulty accessing critical resources, survivors of human trafficking are in a uniquely challenging position.
How do we increase access to meaningful justice for this population? We believe that increasing the anti-trafficking community’s access to under-utilized resources, in particular legal expertise, is key. At ALIGHT, we leverage innovative technology solutions to enable the anti-trafficking community to more easily connect with each other and with lawyers who wish to lend their time and expertise to assist survivors.
ALIGHT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization composed of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals from the fields of law, human trafficking policy, research and development. ALIGHT incubated at The Human Trafficking Center at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver. During this stage, we researched and analyzed the problems facing the human trafficking community to develop the initial foundation for our technological solution.
Be part of the solution, and write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org! If you are a member of the anti-trafficking community who is interested in solutions at the intersection of law, technology and human trafficking, or you are looking to plug in on these issues, we want to hear from you.
