Protesting modern slavery
Trafiq vs. Traffic is a community service, cycling club and racing team created to protest all forms of modern slavery and to promote human rights awareness and education in coordination with our partner organizations.
Promoting our Human Rights
Human rights are the fundamental freedoms and principles that every person is entitled to simply by being human. The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights was recognized by the UN General Assembly as the general standard for human rights across the globe.
Daily these rights are abused in all countries across the planet. The first step towards more dignity and respect is awareness of what each person’s rights actually are. Find out

What are Human Rights?
Simply put, they are the rights you have simply by being human.
With the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations proclaimed 30 defined rights as the common standard for all people and all nations.
Some of these rights are:
The right to no slavery
The right of equality before the law
The right to no arbitrary arrest, detention or exile
The right of freedom of movement
The right of freedom of expression
The right to work
The right to rest and leisure
The right to education
Although these may seem like common sense, even in the most developed nations, these rights are not always recognized and acted upon.
We partner with the following organizations who have also made human rights their mission.
United for Human Rights
United for Human Rights (UHR) is an international organization dedicated to implementing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at local, regional, national and international levels. Its membership is comprised of individuals, educators and groups throughout the world who are actively forwarding the knowledge and protection of human rights by and for all Mankind.
World Bicycle Relief
World Bicycle Relief (WBR) is mobilizing people through the Power of Bicycles. They envision a world where distance is no longer a barrier to education, healthcare and economic opportunity.
WBR has built programs to provide specially designed, locally assembled bicycles for students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs across Africa, South America and Southeast Asia.
Youth For Human Rights International
Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) teaches youth about human rights - specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights - to inspire them to become advocates for tolerance and peace.
