Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are backing the U.N. in their fight against human trafficking, an atrocity that affects an estimated 2.5 million people in the world.
The duo spoke briefly at the launch of the new U.N. Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking, where U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon outlined a new global action plan for countries and organizations to coordinate efforts against organized sexual exploitation and forced labor.
"Help us spread the awareness and bring a spotlight on this atrocious issue," Moore said, with Kutcher adding: "we are failing option-less victims."
The duo has been busy all year combating this issue and creating the Demi & Ashton Foundation, which combats the organized sexual exploitation of girls around the globe.
This couple is so great! Despite the media whirlwind they’re going through, they’re still able to focus on charity!
