Broadcast Networks Tackle Causes with Upcoming Programming

Demi Moore has partnered with the CNN Freedom Project for its documentary Nepal’s Stolen Children, which will focus on human trafficking.

Moore and her husband Ashton Kutcher are the founders of The Demi and Ashton Foundation (DNA), an organization dedicated to combating child sex trafficking. For the documentary, Moore will travel to Nepal to film with Anuradha Koirala, CNN’s 2010 Hero of the Year and the leader of Maiti Nepal, an organization that has saved 12,000 children from sex trafficking since it was founded in 1993.

Demi Moore, her hubby, and their well-intentioned group were highly criticized for a series of Web videos they released in April with help from some of their celebrity friends like Justin Timberlake and Sean Penn. The videos tried to take on the human trafficking topic with a lighter touch and failed.

The CNN Freedom Project is an initiative that includes a blog, Facebook page, and other platforms with reporting on the issue from around the world. Starting June 20 and in the days leading up to the premiere of the documentary, CNN will feature an “In Depth” series of stories on this issue.

On Monday, June 27, the Style Network will air its first-ever town hall meeting at 8 p.m. Too Fat for 15: The Obesity Crisis. The town hall is part of the network’s “Fight With Style Initiative,” which also includes efforts to raise awareness of breast cancer and skin cancer awareness.
