Tech as Art? Maybe. Technology as an Anti-trafficking Tool? Definitely.

Whether or not you believe the creative use of technology should be considered an art form, we can't deny this young woman's creative force in developing Traffick Jam, a program used to fight human trafficking. 

When Emily was a senior in college, she developed a web-based program called Traffic Jam. The program aides the FBI pinpoint and track phone numbers associated with sex ads.    

So the good guys are gaining momentum in
their anti-trafficking arsenal.   

"We're turning the tables on the traffickers. Just as they are not using technology and the Internet to exploit victims, we're going to harness technology to stop them."
