Angelina Jolie is planning to place an ad in USA Today next week about the violence in Darfur, Sudan, reports People magazine (via IMDB.com).
“I chose to take out this ad because when Congress returns from recess, they have the chance to fully fund peacekeepers in Darfur,” Jolie told People. “The situation in Darfur has been going on far too long. It’s only getting worse. Reports are pouring in about mass atrocities including children getting raped and killed. If people are aware of the facts, I believe many will be driven to action.”
In the ad, Jolie states up front: “I’m an actress, and certainly no foreign policy expert.”
