According to the release, Jolie met with Senators to support the reauthorization, and asked them to include “provisions to better protect children against domestic violence and to prioritize children’s health and safety in legal responses to trauma, including through judicial training and advancements in forensic evidence collection.”
Jolie, a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and a human rights activist, has long flirted with a political bid.
“Never say never,” the 46-year-old performer said in a 2019 interview.
