Angelina Jolie was in the capital yesterday to help officially launch Global Action for Children. The organization has been around for almost 4 years, but the press event yesterday helped them officially launch a more formal organization and announce their new headquarters in Washington D.C.

Jennifer Delaney, Executive Director of Global Action for Children told the audience, “Angelina Jolie is a global leader on children issues. We are thrilled to have her as the honorary chairperson of the GAC Board. Her support of GAC helps us to ensure that orphans and vulnerable children in developing countries and the communities that care for them get the support they need.”

This is the same organization that received $1 million from Brad & Angie back in September.

Just Jared has some nice quotes from Angelina & the press conference:

“This is a happy day because it’s not often enough children are represented in this town,” Jolie said. “Their education and well being is an investment in our future.”

Will she run for office? Jolie smiled and said, “I surely don’t think anybody here wants that. [My focus remains] in the field.”

“In many ways it is better to think of these children one by one — each deserving of our care and attention, each being of equal value, and each being a test of whether justice — or injustice — will prevail.”

GAC wants you to get educated and then become a local activist on these issues.

Thanks for the tip, Christine!
