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.
Portland's KGW-TV reports that Hannah was in the city 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.
Hannah's credits include Splash, Kill Bill, Blade Runner, and A Walk To Remember.
