On December 16, Jason Mraz  will take the stage before the iconic Shwedagon Pagoda in Myanmar to help fight human trafficking and slavery. This concert  represents one of many in the MTV EXIT campaign , a partnership between USAID , MTV, AusAID and others to harness the power of music to combat human trafficking globally.
The concert will also feature Myanmar’s top artists, including Phyu Phyu Kyaw Thein , and speakers from the anti-trafficking sector, government and donor community who work to fight human trafficking in Myanmar. Brought together through the power of music, audience members will hear the message against trafficking and learn important information to help them protect themselves and their friends. The concert’s audience isn’t limited to those present at the Yangon People’s Square; the concert will be broadcasted live on Myanmar national television, and will air across MTV’s international network in early 2013 as a special edition of “MTV World Stage,” a weekly live music series available in more than a half-billion homes.
Worldwide, an estimated 2.5 million people  are victims of human trafficking (UN International Labor Organization). Over half of these people live in Asia and the Pacific. Launched in 2007, the MTV EXIT public-private partnership “represents the world’s largest campaign to raise awareness and increase prevention. More than half a million people have attended MTV EXIT concerts and tens of millions more have watched MTV EXIT television programming on air and online. The campaign continues to inspire young people to come together to fight this issue, and represents an effective force for positive social change.
