Academy Award-winning actor Mira Sorvino is the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s Goodwill Ambassador in the Global Fight Against Human Trafficking, and in 2010 was awarded UN Global Advocate of the Year. She has testified before Congress and at the National Conference of State Legislators, the National Association of Attorneys Generals, the American Bar Association, and the Mashable Social Good Summit to reform laws on human trafficking. She has spoken at the Vatican and in Europe, Mexico, and Thailand as part of the UN Blue Heart Action and Awareness Campaign, and made Every Day in Cambodia, about child sex trafficking, with the CNN Freedom Project. Ms. Sorvino uses her powerful platform to amplify survivor testimony.
“The #MeToo movement must include sexual trafficking, sexual exploitation, and prostitution as core violations because they are the nth degree of abuse, violence, and rape. Prostitution is not a victimless crime or an equivalent exchange; demand creates a giant market which traffickers fill with their human products.”
