Alyssa Milano has spent almost her entire life in the public eye. Alyssa is an actor, producer, host, activist, entrepreneur, humanitarian, and NY Times Best-Selling author.
As an activist, Alyssa chooses to shine a spotlight on causes that matter deeply to her. For 20 years, she has been a UNICEF National Ambassador and in 2016 received the Spirit of Compassion Award for her dedication to their mission of advocating for the protection of children’s rights. More recently, Alyssa has successfully harnessed the power of social media to raise awareness and spearhead change, most notably advancing the #MeToo movement. Her use of a hashtag sparked a viral movement of women fighting against sexual harassment and assault.
In the following years, Alyssa’s activism has continued steadfast; technology has helped her crack through and reach a wider audience to educate and empower. Alongside her work onscreen, starring in hit Netflix movies and television series, she has dedicated her time to writing critically acclaimed books and graphic novels that centre on innovative young protagonists seeking to create change in their communities, founded a women’s sports licensed clothing line, TOUCH by Alyssa Milano, lobbied members of congress for greater rights for immigrants as well as education reform and has been on the forefront of efforts to protect health coverage for all Americans.
