Angelina Jolie has recorded her annual PSA for June 20's World Refugee Day, and here's your first look at the Oscar winner's video clip.
“Every minute, eight people around the world are forced to flee their homes due to war and persecution," Jolie says. "No one chooses to be a refugee. Today, 43 million people worldwide have been displaced. We remember them."
The 37-year-old actress was appointed United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Special Envoy back in April, and she has been a UN goodwill ambassador since 2001. Jolie has completed around 40 humanitarian trips over the last 10 years, most recently in Ecuador to visit with Colombian refugees.
