Ashley Judd Stands Up Against Child Slavery

Ashley Judd is leading the fight against children who are being sold into slavery in exchange for sex.

According to the documentary Call & Response, there are more human slaves today than ever before in human history. The movie goes undercover where slavery is thriving from the child brothels of Cambodia to the slave brick kilns of rural India to reveal that in 2007, Slave Traders made more money than Google, Nike and Starbucks combined.

Other celebs joining the fight are Daryl Hannah, Julia Ormond, and Nicholas Kristof. Several Grammy-winning and critically acclaimed artists perform for the cause, including Moby, Natasha Bedingfield, Matisyahu, Imogen Heap, Five For Fighting, and Switchfoot.
