Sorors continue to make headlines as they speak across the country for political issues. First up is singer/songwriter Alicia Keys.

Soror Keys took part in the Women Vote 2012 Summit at the Pennsylvania Convention Center with senior Democratic strategist Valerie Jett on Monday, July 16th. See the video below.

While there, a casually dressed Soror Keys also visited the campaign office. The singer previously threw her support behind Obama for his 2008 presidential campaign.

Next is Soror Jada Pinkett Smith who has not been ashamed about her fight against human trafficking.

This past Tuesday, Soror Smith, along with daughter Willow and hubby, Will Smith wore “Free Slaves” T-shirts as they visited  Capitol Hill to urge the government to take action against human trafficking. They also brought three survivors before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“Fighting slavery doesn’t cost a lot of money. The costs of allowing it to exist in our nation and abroad are much higher,” Soror Pinkett Smith said. “It robs us of the thing we value most, our freedom.”

Soror Pinkett Smith called for an extension of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, which provides funding to combat trafficking and help trafficking victims. The act also created a task force, chaired by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, which coordinates among federal agencies to implement policies against human trafficking.
