Traffik was written and directed by Deon Taylor and produced by Roxanne Taylor. Immediately following the NAACP screening, the floor was opened by moderator Stephanie Elam of CNN. Elam led the interview session before taking questions from the audience. 

With the NAACP having a heavy stance on civil issues, Traffik was the perfect film addition to their NAACP Image Awards screening sessions. The film deals with human traffiking which is critical issue in the United States. It is an issue that is going on in every metropolitan city.
