Role: Communications Manager & ATC Project Lead

Prerana leads the South Asian anti-trafficking movement and works with women and children of Mumbai's red-light areas to end intergenerational prostitution. Its research and advocacy wing – the Anti-Trafficking Center has been critical in shaping the fight against human trafficking and its destination crimes in India. Prerana wanted to capture decades of research, best-practices, learnings, stories, and ongoing policy discourse into a dynamic digital knowledge hub. My role was to lead the portal development, management, content strategy, and dissemination.
