WHAT IS TRAFFIC JAM?

CREATING involvement through arts and entertainment. In their worse form, the visual and performing arts can help fuel trafficking and slavery. Often used as a sign of protest and petition for change, though, the arts also typically lead the charge to educate and inspire people to get involved to make a difference in their world. TRAFFIC JAM works with artists of all genres – musicians, actors, painters, photographers, athletes, fashion designers and many more – to leverage their influence on fans and followers for a Justice Arts Movement (JAM) that shakes the very foundations of modern-day slavery.

Supporting Front-Line Specialists

Unlike typical charitable models that often send funds through multiple parties, each taking out their own “cut” along the way, TRAFFIC JAM sends partner contributions directly to the front-line specialists involved in the real work of trafficking prevention, rescue and restoration programs. TRAFFIC JAM’s core competencies include the vetting out of these front-line partners in accordance with strict due diligence processes, ongoing high-accountability systems for partner integrity and transparency, and the sharing of comprehensive “best practices” with partners for more positive outcomes and greater overall impact.
