Somaly Mam, a former victim of human trafficking, speaks at 85 broads about her experiences as a trafficking victim. We were so honored that our founder, Deborah Jackson, was able to host the talk with one of her biggest heroes.
After first hearing about Somaly’s story, Deborah was inspired to create the first women-only hackathon in the Hamptons, where a team of developers, designers and businesswomen came together to make CommutingInTraffic.com – a decision tree game set in New York City that makes users aware of the prevalence of human trafficking and it’s effect on the global economy.
