Willow Smith is serious about human trafficking. The young star recently attended the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Hearing on human trafficking and advocated for anti-trafficking laws. Jada, the tween’s mother, appeared before Congress to speak on behalf of her daughter in pushing for an extension to the current Trafficking Victims Protection Act.
“Fighting slavery doesn’t cost a lot of money. The costs of allowing it to exist in our nation and abroad are much higher. It robs us of the thing we value most, our freedom,” said Jada. Will Smith was also in attendance to support his wife and daughter in their endeavors.
Jada has written a song and participated in several campaigns to spread awareness since discovering the ferocious effects of human trading. Slavery through human trafficking becomes the norm for thousands of children every year.
