An Evening with Mira Sorvino

Academy Award-winning Actress & Human Rights Advocate

Mira Sorvino is an Academy Award-winning actress, documentary filmmaker, United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, silence breaker and passionate voice of the #MeToo movement and lifelong champion of victims of social injustice. Raised in a family of activists, her social conscience was ignited by her mother’s participation in the march on Washington with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It served as a catalyst for her own social activism and a lifetime of serving others.
