In times of crisis, family is everything.

Which is why it's no surprise that Angelina Jolie's brother James Haven is speaking out exclusively to E! about his sister's decision to have a double mastectomy.

"There is no question Angelina makes a difference in our world by bringing awareness to so many causes," he tells E! in an exclusive statement. "Her compassion for humanity alone always makes me honored to call her my sister."

NEWS: How Angie has helped change the world

In keeping with Jolie's legacy of service, James and Angelina are currently working on a film together called Court of Conscience. James is directing and Angelina is producing.

The film is a huge priority for the siblings who want to make an impact on current laws about child advocacy and helping to change laws at a state and local level.

Court of Conscience is clearly a labor of love for Haven, founder of the CoreCause Foundation, an organization whose sensibility clearly informs the film. "The fundamental belief of CoreCause is to focus on a preventative rather than recovery stand point. Most of the worlds crises are the effects of a 'core cause' that if addressed would solve the problem entirely."
