About ALIGHT


ALIGHT (Alliance to Lead Impact in Global Human Trafficking) exists to empower human trafficking survivors - at scale. Founded as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Colorado in 2015, ALIGHT connects survivors’ diverse legal needs to untapped expertise in the legal community in Colorado and beyond. ALIGHT works with social service providers and community organizations that support different vulnerable populations to help the human trafficking survivors they serve to connect to the right attorney - at the right time. 


ALIGHT’s leadership in pioneering and implementing an innovative model for legal services delivery for survivors (think: Lyft app for specialized pro bono services) has been nationally and internationally recognized. In 2020, the American Bar Association passed Resolution 113, which promotes the need for the innovative tech-based model that ALIGHT has established in Colorado. In 2021, the Freedom Collaborative, a platform for global anti-trafficking efforts, recognized ALIGHT’s model as unique in the world. ALIGHT has been invited to present this innovative work at the 2017 United Nations Conference on the Status of Women’s human trafficking event, the Princeton Center for Information Technology Policy and the Freedom Network.


We are seeking individuals who are highly talented, passionate and thrive in an entrepreneurial culture that values justice, collaboration, innovative solutions with impact and a multidisciplinary approach to the injustices of human trafficking.
