The box office diva spoke at $28 NPC lunch. Her remarks aired on CSPAN….The Medill News Service also shot the luncheon…we actually have one network interested in using our footage.
She was introduced as the Academy Award winner (Girl Interrupted) and as the Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency.
She said to bear with her…the flashing cameras made her nervous.
Jolie spoke about her visits to refugee camps all over the world. She talked about the difficult experiences refugee children encountered when applying for asylum in the United States. Many young victims are interrogated by American officals about being abused, raped and witnesses to brutal murders.
She sounded really sincere about her mission. It’s nice to see famous people do some good in the world.
