Laurie Holden, who played Andrea in The Walking Dead, recently took on a new role. She volunteered for Operation Underground Railroad, a human rights organization that targets sex traffickers. As reported by Complex, Holden was part of a raid in Colombia involving 55 sex slaves.
The organization worked with Colombian authorities to stage a bachelor party with underage sex workers. When the traffickers agree on camera to to pimp out the underage girls and the money is exchanged, the cops move in to make the arrests. During the ordeal Holden works with social workers to comfort the girls, who fear they’re the ones who will be in trouble and that they won’t be paid. Holden is clearly heartbroken when interviewed after the fact.
