Join APABA as we host a virtual Lunch & Learn featuring ALIGHT (Alliance to Lead Impact in Global Human Trafficking). ALIGHT is a Colorado-based nonprofit with a mission to unlock a fresh start for survivors of human trafficking. ALIGHT (https://alightnet.org/) is one of the few organizations in the U.S. that provides inclusive human trafficking-specific legal services and is a co-founder of the National Survivor Law Collective. This program will discuss trafficking with a focus on vulnerabilities, cultural and trauma-informed considerations and how attorneys can help with the legal needs of survivors.
A Zoom link will be sent to you upon registration.
