Right now, it’s estimated that there are 2 million children worldwide involved some way in sex trafficking and slavery. Every 30 seconds a child is sold into sex slavery. Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) is a non-profit organization comprised of highly skilled ex- Navy Seals, CIA and Special Ops operatives that goes to the darkest corners of the world to help local law enforcement liberate child sex slaves and dismantle criminal networks. In the past celebrities such as MLB’s Adam Lorache and Walking Dead actress Laurie Holden have been a part of rescue missions as ambassadors for O.U.R. Since it’s start in 2013, O.U.R’s work has gained international media coverage on CBS Evening News, ABC Nightly News, Fox News Sunday, Foreign Policy, and The Blaze among others, and recently a documentary was done on them called The Abolitionists.
