The Smith family aren't just artists—they're activists, too!

On Tuesday, Jada Pinkett Smith testified before Congress to bring attention to human trafficking in the United States and around the world.

Jada took the stand, but hubby Will and daughter Willow sat proudly behind her as she spoke her mind.

Per ABC News, Jada, 40, became interested in the plight of children forced into sexual slavery or used as soldiers after 11-year-old Willow showed her the Kony 2012 documentary.

"We need more adequate funding for programs that can actually, first, protect young women and men who are victims of trafficking and then also the programs that help transition our young people from those traumas into being able to create and develop lives so that they're not only survivors but they are thriving," the actress said. She also brought along three American survivors of human trafficking, telling Congress the young women "are not just surviving, but they're thriving."

It's nice to see this Hollywood fam supporting each other in supporting a cause.
