In a TV interview with Katie Couric, Jada Pinkett Smith said that it was her daughter, Willow, who first made her aware of human trafficking. When Willow was 11, she told her mother that girls were being sold for sex and she wanted to lend her voice to help end the problem. Pinkett Smith didn't quite believe what she was hearing from her daughter, so she told her that she would investigate it, and they could work together on it. She was shocked to find out girls as young as 8 are being forced into sex trafficking. Since then, she has been a tireless advocate for this cause.
