Actress Kristin Davis Goes to Washington to Push for Reforms to Food Aid

Actress and Global Ambassador for Oxfam Kristin Davis is in Washington this week. She's meeting with members of Congress to lobby them on reforming the Food Aid portion of the Farm Bill which must be reauthorized by September.
I think that it’s in everyone’s interest that the other countries and people in other countries have stability in terms of their food sources. Sometimes our food bills destabilize other countries, so I think that we need to look at that and make sure that we’re not shooting ourselves in the foot. -Kristin Davis
The Sex and the City star spoke to Editor Emmanuel Touhey, comment editor of The Hill newspaper, about the need for reform, her visits to refugee camps in Africa and what she hopes to accomplish on her first visit to Capitol Hill.  Below is a great video. And here is an excerpt of the interview published in The Hill .
