The comedy actor Ashton Kutcher has given some speech in the Senate addressing a roomful of politicians. Yesterday Feb. 15, the actor testified in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for the second annual End Modern Slavery hearing; the actor has been the co-founder of Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children.

According to Refinery29, the actor Ashton Kutcher stated that he's been a part of anti-trafficking work where he met victims from Russia, India, Mexico, New Jersey, New York and all across every country. The actor has been part of FBI raids were the things that no person should ever see. Ashton Kutcher experienced seeing a video of a child that has been raped by an American sex tourist in Cambodia.

Ashton Kutcher was seeking more funding for his organization at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing. He tackled the importance of using good technology to battle technology that aids human trafficking.

Ashton Kutcher also mentioned the importance of fostering private and public partnerships, stating that many companies want to help and do the right thing along with offering not only funds but also giving free legal work services to fight against human traffickers.

Some private companies brought different resources to their organization; Kutcher once stated that every advantage of these resources must be used in a positive way and to help. As claimed by the reports from NBC News, certain law enforcement agencies have used a beta version of Thorn's software to register their cut down and cases during investigation time. A lot of agencies were understaffed and under-resourced when it comes to human trafficking and by the help of technology, it will make their job easier.

Ashton Kutcher's entire speech was emotional and inspiring, even the actor has nearly gone in tears at one point. After his speech, Senator John McCain thanked Kutcher by telling him "Ashton, you were better-looking in the movies. Thank you!"
