Actress Samantha Morton is preparing to lead a protest in her native U.K. against officials' plans to close a care home for children.
The Minority Report star spent part of her childhood living in care institutions in Nottingham, England.
And now, at the request of a social worker who helped raise her, Morton will lead a campaign to keep open a similar shelter in her home city by delivering a speech on Monday (09Mar09).
She says, "I would not be where I am today without the support of my residential social workers. Living in a children's home for me was a positive experience.
"I beg the council to reconsider cutting these vital services to children in care, who are already as we know among the most vulnerable in society."
