If you thought MTV was all about reality shows and music videos think again, there is an initiative called MTV EXIT that fights human trafficking. It leverages the power of music, concerts , video and celebrities to engage youth in the fight against modern day slavery. MTV EXIT aims to increase awareness and prevention of human trafficking through television programs, online content, live events, and partnerships with anti-trafficking organizations. The UN’s International Labor Organization estimates that worldwide about 2.5 million people are victims of trafficking (ILO) Over half of these people are in Asia and the Pacific.
