MTV EXIT (end exploitation and trafficking) is an MTV organization which stakes a stand against human trafficking.  Being a music television channel, MTV EXIT strongly encourages artists to use their talents to help bring awareness, educate, and fight human trafficking.  This can be through concert to raise awareness or funds.  You can also create pieces of art that make the viewer stop and think.  Reaching over 500,000 people, MTV EXIT has held 29 admission-free concerts across the Asia-Pacific region to educate on safe migration!
