RAISING AWARENESS ABOUT SEX TRAFFICKING

I was watching a film today where the character was talking about how the Nazi's formed opinions about Jewish people using propaganda.    They would use images like below.  Mind you this is not mine or my opinion - I'm just showing the cartoon the Nazi's used to turn people against the Jewish community.


Now I want you to look at the people who are being paid for by big money such as the Hunt Alternative Foundation which is paying for the "End Demand" campaign to teach you what sex trafficking is, who the victims are, and most important . . . who the TRAFFICKERS are:


Brenda Myers-Powell, a street prostitute who had a street pimp.  She's also a woman of color.  


The  "No Such Thing" campaign whose poster child is literally a girl of color.  


Marion Thatcher - a woman of color who speaks about street prostitution and street pimps.  


Wilthema Ortiz Pettigrew, a woman of color who speaks about illegal street prostitution.


Malika Saar who speaks out for the "No Such Thing" campaign.  Right down to a hair style people associate with jail.


Jada Pinkett-Smith speaking for "Don't Sell Bodies".


Samoly Mam - now while found out to be a fake - the point remains she was talked into it by people such as Melissa Farley and Nicholas Kristof.  What image were they going for?  She's not white.


Monica Jones has been getting a lot of air time in the media about not being a trafficking victim - while certainly being shown as a "prostitute".   Note she's a person of color.


The one Caucasian in the bunch.  Note however she speaks about illegal street prostitution and of being pimped by one man - not a criminal operation.  


Chong Kim - again exposed as a fraud but what were they going for?  She's not white, and she talks about illegal street prostitution and about the one man who trafficked her.  Not a criminal operation or group of traffickers - but of one man.


I typed in "trafficking arrests" and this is a screen shot of what came back.  Where are the white and Asian people?  Also, these arrests are about individuals in a relationship with the victim - singular.   Where's the trafficking operations involving multiple people?

Let's contrast to the people who say "sex trafficking doesn't exist for us".


Here's Maxine Doogan.


Domina Elle


Savannah Sly - President of Sex Workers Outreach Project


When we heard Heidi Fleiss was being filmed on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew - we tried for weeks to speak to him about Sex Workers Anonymous AND about the fact recovery for us did NOT work the same way as taught in textbooks which writes about male addiction recovery.  I say that because Bill Wilson founded AA.  Jimmy Kinnon founded NA.  Roy K. founded SA.  So these groups were founded by men and based on their recovery.  Textbooks write about research done mostly on males.  So what works for females who have been sexually abused and then worked in the sex industry, possibly trafficked, is NOT what's included in those textbooks.

So if you line up every single episode of "Intervention" you will see every single episode fails with sex workers because the "typical" approach does not work on us.  Dr. Drew's staff repeatedly refused to speak to us.  His staff has refused to put us on his show.

Now I don't mean ME = I mean Sex Workers Anonymous.  We have a chapter of SWA in Los Angeles and I mean WE.  If you'd like to hear from some of our members in their words www.leavingtheliferadio.com   Our program is 30 years old, we've got news clips up at www.hightechmadam.com with other quotes from members, and it's perfectly logical to assume if you have someone like Heidi or Mary Carey in your program then you should be able to refer them to the program.  Yet Dr. Drew has REFUSED to even speak to us despite the fact we have an international program, and our hotline has answered 500,000 calls to Polaris' 100,000 calls to date.

So WHO DOES Dr. Drew speak to:


The screen above came from www.prostitutionrecovery.org only the site goes nowhere.    There is no contact information for our hotline.  However, it appears there's an interview up with Dr. Drew and Kathryn Griffin-Townsend.  Now let me get this straight - Dr. Drew is part of a group of shows produced by Hearst Media.  Hearst Media also produces Oprah.  Hearst Media has produced THREE shows on Brenda Myers-Powell, a woman who has attributed her recovery not to Kathryn's program, BUT TO OURS.  

So Brenda, who gets her recovery in OUR program is not filmed by Dr. Drew, but instead he filmed Kathryn Griffin-Townsend.  Can anyone show me where HER graduates have wound up please?   Oh wait a minute - she was supposedly a part of "8 Minutes" which was exposed for either being a faked staged show, or for "breaking promises" and not "delivering recovery as promised" depending upon which version you want to believe about why the show was taken down.


So if our program has stood the test of time as being more effective than Kathryn's - then why is SHE the one being filmed by Dr. Drew instead of our program?  The most obvious difference between us is that she is a woman of color while I "appear" to be white.  I say "appear" because I'm light skinned, but in reality I have African American and also native American blood.  

The show "8 Minutes" also featured D'Lita Miller from Families Against Sex Trafficking as their resource consultant.  A woman who when I spoke to her claimed she "had no resources" for victims.  When I offered to show her where resources were - she blocked my phone number.  Real professional action.   These are photos of Ms. Miller who was also put on CNN with Maxine:


Like the corn rows again for the "ethnic" hair style?

Now - who are the "rescuers" brought to us by this media campaign?


Annie Lombert - Hookers for Jesus:  she is all over the media.


Linda Smith - head of Shared Hope who up to 2013 told us they didn't provide "direct services" to USA domestic victims of sex trafficking while taking millions from American donors.


Joy Hoover - who got a law passed in like a minute flat in Nevada with the Cupcake Girls.


Bradley Myles - co-founder and CEO of Polaris.


Tim Ballard  - who Nicholas Kristof filmed taking a rescue mission into the streets of Columbia.


Shelley Lubben - Pink Cross



Minh Dang - named to the office by President Obama.  She won't return any of my calls despite the fact I run the largest and oldest program of survivors in this country.  

Now check out our blog page:


Note we've had 100,000 views and our blog isn't that old.  

If you go to http://www.sexworkersanonymous.com/  I'd like to point out we have an image of a young person, a male, a female, and a person of color.  We shot for a nice mix.


Now - check out the images which came up in Google connected to the "Girlfriend Experience" film which just came out recently.  


I know marketing and propaganda when I see it.  

Something is wrong when the people I'm seeing saying "sex trafficking doesn't exist" are white, those who say they're victims of trafficking put in front of the camera as such are all women of color, the people being shown in the media as "traffickers" are all people of color, and those being shown as "crusaders" are all white with most being downright blond and blue-eyed.   

Those crusading for trafficking victims who are not white, are only talking about street prostitution and street pimping - thus further making it appear sex trafficking is mostly about illegal street prostitution and street pimps.  

If I'm wrong about this OMISSION of sex trafficking existing within the LEGAL sex industry, affecting men and women of ANY color, existing within the higher ends of the sex industry, and further that I don't see ANYONE talking about organized trafficking in the major media - then please explain to me why Katherine Chon went after re-criminalizing prostitution in Rhode Island BUT NOT Nevada where the legal brothels operate.  http://www.browndailyherald.com/2007/02/15/local-activists-work-to-end-ri-human-trafficking/

When I helped give a press conference on sex trafficking existing within the legal sex industry - I had an older woman there with grey hair (Kathleen Mitchell), an Asian woman (Chong Kim), an African American woman (Brenda Myers-Powell) and myself (who is of mixed descent).  I went to great effort to make sure we didn't represent a singular racial image of who survivors were and I spoke about sex trafficking at the higher levels of the sex industry, as well as in the illegal and legal aspects of the sex industry.  Candace Jordan was there speaking about how Joe Richards, the owner of a legal brothel, had offered her a bribe while she was on the city council.   Thus we also spoke about traffickers who were not only in the legal sex industry - but also represented a more organized type of trafficker.  

Well this probably explains why I'm not the one being paraded around on stages nor in front of the camera.  Tell you what Dr. Drew - I'll paint a black face on, talk about street prostitution, and a street pimp - instead of trafficking which is existing within levels of authority preventing victims from calling for help because of who is involved in our world and we'll leave discussion about victims connected to men like Eliot Spitzer alone.  

I guess we're just supposed to believe Svetlana (the one caught with Eliot Spitzer in a hotel recently) cut herself on a wine glass after telling Eliot she wanted to leave the country to clearly get away from him.  http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/spitzer-choke-accuser-identified-svetlana-travis-25-article-1.2532341 and that her supposed "confession" she had "made the whole thing up" which gets Eliot off the hook has nothing to do with his political and media power and that there's absolutely no reason why someone like Eliot wouldn't want Svetlana to know she can get support from a program like ours.

And let's not even think women like Heidi Fleiss, Mary Carey, Kristy Mack, Belle Knox, Suzy Favor-Hamilton, Brandy Britton or Jeane Palfrey might possibly be victims of some type of coercion, and don't need a program to help them exit and find recovery from the sex industry.  

No - women like Alyssa Funkes (the young woman who killed herself after being bullied by people who attacked her for being in porn) are just fine without a group like www.sexworkersanonymous.com to turn to for help Dr. Drew.  There isn't any need at all for women like her to know about us.  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2637887/I-just-want-die-The-words-19-year-old-college-student-committed-suicide-weeks-starring-Casting-Couch-porn-bullied-former-classmates.html

Nor for women like Amber Rayne who was found dead recently after saying James Deen had raped her (another man in the porn industry) - 
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/04/05/amber-rayne-porn-star-who-accused-james-deen-of-sexual-assault-found-dead/

Nor Christy Mack when she decides to retire.  Sure Christy will be able to go get some job as a cocktail waitress or a secretary and she'll have no problem at all looking for a job somewhere.  Her past career won't hold her back one bit.  Nor will Belle Knox have any problems with housing, banking, nor jobs once she quits the porn industry.  Women like Suzy Favor-Hamilton who keep hooking despite having a career, a husband and a child, and over $1,000,000 in endorsements can always just fly off to Beverly Hills to see a psychiatrist so no - there's no need to have men and women be able to pick up a phone and call our hotline and speak to another person who is in recovery from the sex industry.  

Yes Dr. Drew you know so much about this subject you can just point out to me your long list of testimonials from men and women in recovery from the sex industry you've helped like I can at www.leavingtheliferadio.com  I've got more interviews I haven't loaded yet online also.

When marketing tobacco - they used images of the Marlboro Man.  It seems we have Madison Avenue at work in this field right now folks!  

Because I'm the one who has answered 500,000 calls for 30 years, has 190,000 members in the current database, 100,000 views on her blog, 60,000 subcribers to our newsletter, and who created the program who got women like Brenda Myers-Powell, Kathleen Mitchell, Savannah Sanders, Paige Latin, and many other leaders in this field their early recovery - but I'm not the one being invited to speak, teach, train, or advice on policy or laws.  

No - we have a woman who stood on a corner for four years and now she's got a pretty dress on we're going to put her in charge of training people in law enforcement, probation, etc.  With people's lives at stake here with respect to what they know about this subject, and all the money being spent on providing the best possible training to people in the field - THIS is who is being presented to you as your educator NOT the founder of the modern day sex trafficking movement who started it all and whose work was even validated in a 10 year study "Leaving Prostitution".   No - we're going to bring you Leah talking about her four years on the streets.   No one is trying to hide any information from anyone around here now are they?

I'm sorry but WE HAVE LAWS ON THE BOOKS ALREADY TO ARREST PIMPS.  You get pimped by a pimp and guess what?  Call 911 and his butt will be in prison in five minutes.  THAT'S NOT THE WORK LEFT TO BE DONE!


So the powers that be have to make sure to keep the focus on the streets so no one knows what's going on in places like the DEA owned strip club you can read about here:  http://nypost.com/2015/05/20/dea-agents-secretly-owned-strip-club-with-illegal-immigrant-dancers-feds/
















Nope THIS is the trafficker we're going to focus on in our training and awareness raising.


The last thing we're going to do is put Jody up on a stage or in front of a camera talking about we need to "change the system" so that THOSE victims can go and get help when they're being trafficked rather than waiting around for the possibility of someone tripping up on their case to help them.  The NY pimp's victims had COPS SEE THEM BEING PIMPED AND THEY DID NOTHING!  Oh no though - we can't talk about THAT and what we're going to do about THAT.  

You know it's things like this why after the Mann Act of 1910 was passed to help Chinese women who were being trafficked in massage parlors back then that by 1960 we'd only arrested two African American men who married white women as "traffickers".  

So "end demand" wants to keep focusing you in on the victims while I keep on trying to get you to focus in on who it is creating the pain so something can be done.  Well if the only way to get on camera or on a stage is to put on blackface - I'd better go get my make-up kit.
