This week on Law Light we have a very special guest, Marianna Kosharovsky, Founder and Executive Director of ALIGHT (Alliance to Lead Impact on Global Human Trafficking) here in Denver, Colorado. Marianna sits down with Melinda Delmonico, President & CEO of Gibson Arnold, to discuss her work in fighting human trafficking through her non-profit, ALIGHT. Founded in 2015, ALIGHT provides legal services and other support for survivors of human trafficking.
Marianna shares with us the incredible story of her journey through law that eventually led her to create this ground-breaking organization. She and Melinda discuss the impact that lawyers and the law can make in the lives of others, and the importance of sharing your power in society. Marianna also delves into what it’s like to build your own organization from the ground up, and how it can feel like “building the plane that you’re flying”.
