PORTLAND, Ore. — Actress Daryl Hannah, an activist against child sex slavery, rode with police in Oregon over the weekend as they patrolled strip clubs and areas known for prostitution.
KGW reports Hannah was in Portland for a weekend conference against sex trafficking. She says she was shocked to learn a majority of the girls in the strip clubs are represented by pimps.
Hannah is supporting a bill sponsored by Sen. Ron Wyden that would fund shelters for young women to help them escape sex trafficking.
