Sarah Jessica Parker joins fight against sex trafficking in NYC radio spotOctober 22nd, 2010 - 5:19 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Oct 22 (ANI): “Sex and the City” actress Sarah Jessica Parker and “Precious” star Gabourey Sidibe have lent their voices to a New York City radio spot to fight sex trafficking.
“These kids can be runaways or victims of abusive parents …they’re desperate, they’re vulnerable and they’re lost,” the New York Daily News quoted Sidibe as saying in the radio spot that premiered Thursday.
“It makes me sick to think of those animals taking 12-, 13-, and 14-year-old girls and renting them out to a John,” said Sidibe, who was nominated for an Oscar for playing a sexually abused teen.
“At least 100,000 American children are trafficked into prostitution in the United States each year,” Parker said in the spot produced for free by advertising firm LPNY.
“It’s important that we fight this plague that affects the lives of so many of our children.”
“Let’s help the Brooklyn DA get these dangerous people off the streets,” Parker added. (ANI)
