According to a recent report from the US State Department, over 27 million people around the world are victims of human trafficking. It's a $32 billion dollar industry, and in many cases girls as young as 11 are being bought and sold into prostitution.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a hearing to address the problem of human trafficking at home and abroad. Jada Pinkett-Smith and her daughter, singer Willow Smith, will be testifying at the hearing.
This morning on "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien," Jada and Willow preview their testimony and explain why it's important to raise awareness of human trafficking in the US. They're joined by special guests, Minh, Monica and Jaquan, all survivors themselves of human trafficking, who will also be attending the Senate hearing.
