Mira Sorvino - Mira Sorvino Addresses United Nations About Human Trafficking

Actress Mira Sorvino addressed members of the United Nations on Tuesday (03Apr12) in a bid to put an end to human trafficking.
The Mighty Aphrodite star, a Goodwill Ambassador for the organisation, appeared at a General Assembly meeting in New York and urged member states to do all they could to stop the practice, which involves an estimated 2.4 million people.
Sorvino said, "Modern day slavery is bested only by the illegal drug trade for profitability. Transnational organised crime groups are adding humans to their product lists. Satellites reveal the same routes moving them as arms and drugs."
The actress also called for stronger legislation and better police training in dealing with the problem.
She has been a fervent activist for international women's rights since starring in the 2005 Tv movie Human Trafficking.
