The Smith Family Stands Up Against Human Trafficking

We love the Smith Family, They stand up for whats right no matter how busy their schedules may be.

Willow, Will Smith and Jada visited Capitol Hill wearing blazers over t-shirts that said “Free Slaves”. They also brought along three trafficking survivors to help underscore the gravity of the issue and press Congress for more action. Jada testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the problem of human trafficking at home and around the world

According to the HuffingtonPost:
Actress and activist Jada Pinkett Smith urged Congress on Tuesday to step up the fight against human trafficking in the U.S. and abroad.The actress testified during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing that she plans to launch a campaign to raise awareness and spur action against human trafficking and slavery. She said the “old monster” of slavery “is still with us,” almost 150 years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation that freed slaves in the U.S.“Fighting slavery doesn’t cost a lot of money. The costs of allowing it to exist in our nation and abroad are much higher,” the actress said. “It robs us of the thing we value most, our freedom.”The actress called for an extension of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, which provides funding to combat trafficking and help trafficking victims. The act also created a task force, chaired by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, which coordinates among federal agencies to implement policies against human trafficking.Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., pledged to try to gather bipartisan congressional support to further fund the act.The State Department estimates that at least 14,500 people are trafficked to the U.S. annually..
Here is a short video of the Smith family’s appearance on Capitol Hill.
