“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.
