Angie Harmon Hollywood actress Angie Harmon discusses her role as spokesperson for UNICEF’s End Trafficking Project.

Angie Harmon’s still fighting crime on TV, but these days, it’s as police detective Jane Rizzoli on “Rizzoli & Isles” – the role that recently earned her a People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Cable TV Actress.” Appointed a UNICEF Ambassador in 2013, Angie Harmon is committed to advocating on behalf of the world’s most vulnerable citizens.

“I have a soft spot for children,” Harmon says. “Here’s the thing, they can’t defend themselves, they can’t protect themselves they’re basically just, at whoever’s whim is with them or has control of them or is taking care of them.”

“It is horrible and it is repulsive and disgusting and completely sad that it still exists, you know, in society today,” Harmon told Mike Walter. “It’s a global problem that has to be stopped.”

The star also has a line of recycled, hand-cast brass and aluminum jewelry, called the Angie Harmon Red Earth Collection. Her designs are made in collaboration with artisans in Kenya who work with Red Earth; a portion of the proceeds from the sales go to UNICEF.
