“Hopefully Republicans and Democrats can come together, see a movie about human trafficking, and actually find ways to stop the human trafficking that’s continuing to move throughout the world,” McCarthy said.
One of my goals as Speaker is to improve the culture of Congress to get this place working again.Tonight I’m hosting a Movie Night where we’ll be screening the Sound of Freedom. Looking forward to watching it & speaking with @reallycaviezel about combatting child trafficking. pic.twitter.com/sAHWt3V4Jd — Kevin McCarthy (@SpeakerMcCarthy) July 25, 2023
My friends are hosting a private screening #SoundofFreedom tonight on Capitol Hill for Members of Congress. Praying members on both sides of aisle will unite knowing this is a serious issue and children need our help.

The Sound of Freedom is more than a movie. It’s a call to action to combat child trafficking wherever the evil exists.Thank you to Tim Ballard and Jim Caviezel for bringing this true story to light—even though so many in Hollywood tried to stop you! pic.twitter.com/VPtenKk9Tt — Kevin McCarthy (@SpeakerMcCarthy) July 26, 2023
During a brief interview session, McCarthy asked Caviezel to express the core message he wants moviegoers to take away from the film. “When God tells you to do something, you don’t hesitate,” the actor said.

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia noted she was all in on viewing the film. “America is number one in the world in consuming child pornography and child sex trafficking, and the Biden Administration has lost over 85,000 migrant children. These are the most appalling statistics. Tonight, I’m looking forward to watching Sound of Freedom and stopping evil,” she posted on Twitter. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
Just watched Sound of Freedom tonight & my heart felt heavy. Everyone should go to see it. Child trafficking is the modern slavery, a $150B a year criminal industry. Protecting children is not a partisan issue. pic.twitter.com/pZ8cO7QEr7— Lily Tang Williams (@Lily4Liberty) July 26, 2023
