While most of Hollywood was prepping for the Screen Actors Guild Awards over the weekend, Angelia Jolie made an under-the-radar trip to Iraq and used her time there to visit some of the victims of ISIS who have been displaced in refugee camps.
While at the camp, Jolie shook hands with many of the individuals and also offered an impassioned speech, encouraging world peace.
“Too many innocent people are paying the price of the conflict in Syria and spread of extremism. The international community has to step up and do more,” Jolie said, according to The Daily Mail. “It is not enough to defend our values at home. We have to defend them here, in the camps and in the informal settlements across the Middle East, and in the ruined towns of Iraq and Syria. We are being tested here, as an international community, and so far – for all the immense efforts and good intentions – we are failing.”
