Jada Pinkett-Smith continues in her efforts to bring awareness to the issue of human trafficking by testifying before a Senate Foreign Relations Committee in support of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. This Act allows for the U.S. President’s Task Force to “monitor and combat trafficking and assist in the coordination of anti-trafficking efforts.”
Back in May, Jada shared with the Huffington Post how she became aware of the issue of human sex trafficking when she received a call from her friend, Salma Hayek, who suggested the two of them use their celebrity to bring awareness to the cause. Not long after, they teamed up to produce the video entitled, Nada, in which Jada, who appears naked, admits that she was initially skeptical about being nude in the video.
Jada stated, “at first when she asked me… I was like, no, I can’t do that. Then we talked about it in great detail and the first thing Salma said to me that rang so true was, “Jada don’t get this thing mistaken. This IS about our bodies.” She continued, “That hit me like a ton of bricks..We recognized the neccessity to show the beauty of a woman’s body in juxtaposition to what a woman’s body and spirit looks like once it’s been stolen..These traffickers look at women as being just a body.” Continue to the next page to view the video.
