Angelina Jolie isn’t the only humanitarian in her family!


Not to be outdone, her brother James Haven is set to appear before the Senate on Capitol Hill on Tuesday to lobby about the fight against AIDS and malaria, The Washington Post reports.

The 34-year-old will meet with senators Dick Lugar and Barbara Boxer, among others, to discuss the various efforts being employed in this battle.

While his sister has had her share of acclaim for her globe-trotting good deeds, James has received less fanfare for his big heart. The actor is on the advisory board of Global Action for Children, which will shepherd him around the Hill, and serves as a youth pastor at the Saddlebrook Church, an evangelical church in southern California run by Purpose-Driven Life author Rick Warren.

And how about Goodwill Ambassador Angelina herself? The 32-year-old honorary chair of Global Action is also in Washington, D.C., this week, where she attended the Vital Voices Global Leadership Awards gala Monday evening and is scheduled to meet with the Council on Foreign Relations on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, her sons, Maddox, 6, and Pax, 4, who joined mom for the trip, are passing time flying high at the Air and Space Museum. The brothers spent Monday afternoon at the aeronautic center, where they continually inquired tour guides about the Space Hall, Skylab and the WWI and WWII exhibits.
