New Friends New Life will present its annual luncheon featuring Julia Ormond, a British Emmy Award-winning stage, film, and television actress who has been fighting human trafficking since the 1990s. Luncheon co-chairs are Katherine Wynne, Kristi Sherrill Hoyl and Melissa Sherrill Martin. Honorary co-chairs are Matrice Ellis-Kirk and Ambassador Ron Kirk.

Among her best-known film work, Ormond has starred in Legends of the Fall, Sabrina, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and Che. On the small screen, Ormond received an Emmy® Award in 2010 for her role in the HBO movie Temple Grandin and one in 1997 as executive producer of Calling the Ghosts: A Story About Rape, War and Women. In 2012 she was nominated for an Emmy® for her recurring role on Mad Men. She can most recently be seen in her series regular role in The Walking Dead; World Beyond, and in the still-to-be-released Reminisce.

Offscreen, Ormond is a longtime activist against human trafficking, promoting international awareness in her role as the first and former United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Goodwill Ambassador Against Trafficking and Slavery. She is the founder of the non-profit ASSET Campaign which is the source of the global legislation the Transparency in Supply Chains Law that requires major businesses to publicly disclose their policies to prevent human trafficking and forced labor in product supply chains. As an advocate, Ormond has traveled the world assessing solutions and challenges, and she has appeared as an expert witness before the U.S. Congress and the United Nations. For this advocacy work she received the World Economic Forum’s Crystal Award and the Women for Women International’s Peace Award.
