NEVADA NUMBERS ON THE NATIONAL TRAFFICKING HOTLINE RESOURCE LISTING

On Tuesday 11/8/16 at 5:15 pm I went to the Nevada National Trafficking Hotline List of Resources and started calling to see who would be in if there was a crisis after hours.   The results I got were:

Alameda Prosecutor's Office – Celeste Guap is what happened with them.  Need I say more?

Alliance for Community Transformation Hotline – no answer

Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Voicemail saying “will return your call within two days) when you push #1 for legal assistance

Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach – Voicemail

Awaken – Voicemail

CAST – doesn't have “resources in Nevada”.  The operator said they can “only help if you relocate to California”. 

National CAST Hotline (888) 373-7888 – was on hold for five minutes listening to music.

Community Against Sexual Harm – Voicemail

Community Violence Solutions - Disconnected

Courage Worldwide – not taking intakes until the fall on recording.

Fresno Central Valley – youth shelter for those under 18 years of age in Fresno, California

Hookers for Jesus – Voicemail saying “call back during business hours”

International Institute – Voicemail

International Institute – Duplicate of above

International Rescue Committee Phoenix – Voicemail

International Rescue Committee HOPE  - Voicemail

LACY – Recording saying calls “are not confidential and it takes sometimes 4 days to return calls.  Further, they do not work with criminal matters – only helping teens or teen mothers with custody cases”.

Live Violence Free – Got a woman on the line saying they offer domestic violence assistance to Nevada residents.

Made for Them - Voicemail

Monterey Rape Crisis – they answered saying they only service Monterey county in California

My Sisters House – recording tells me to “call back the 24 hotline and gives me the same # I just dialed)

Operation Safehouse – recording it's for a youth shelter

Redemption Ridge – a hotline for sex trafficking in Oregon

Restoration Railroad – does not provide services in Nevada

RISE – press 1 to speak to an advocate.  The woman who answered said she was not an advocate.  They provide shelter in San Luis Obispo, but not Nevada

San Francisco Asian Womens' Shelter.  Referred me to their “national hotline” of 415 8644722.  A recording comes on saying they're a domestic violence hotline.  A woman answered saying they “do not provide direct services in Nevada”.

Saving Innocence – voicemail saying leave a message.

Sex Workers Anonymous.  Our hotline is not listed as a 24/7 hotline.  The web link goes to an old radio show I no longer produce at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/stopsextrafficktalk.    That is NOT our web address of www.sexworkersanonymous.com   I have not produced this show in YEARS which is why the web address and phone number on the radio show are no longer working.  It makes it appear we aren't anything other than a radio program.

The RISE  Group Homes – Voicemail

Salvation Army SEEDS Program 232 230

Utah Domestic Violence Hotline – got a recording saying I'd be on “hold less than five minutes”.  Since this is for Utah I hung up.

WEAVE – told me they could “look up referrals for services in Nevada”.  Since WEAVE  is in Sacramento, then I doubt they have much in the way of Nevada referrals.

West Coast Childrens Clinic  - they only serve women and children with Medi-Cal – which is California health insurance.

For the MILLIONS of dollars these guys have received to mann this hotline - don't you think it could be maintained better at least?  Weed out the disconnected numbers?  Ever try calling a suicide hotline and getting a busy signal?  It's depressing!

Letter to Christian Broadcasting about Sex Trafficking

Dear 700 Club, Daystar TV, and Joyce Meyer Ministries:

When I first heard God's voice telling me to start what became the domestic sex trafficking revolution in this country back in the 1980's - I had reached out to your various shows/channels asking if I could bring on some of our "success" stories to the Christian community like I was doing on talk shows such as Donahue (you can see some of these shows at www.tinyurl.com/sexworkersanonymous)



Despite sending your various producers media kits to try and get us on some Christian programming, we were glossed over.  I thought maybe you didn't want to address the issue of sex trafficking at first - until I started seeing people coming on your stations/shows who were complete frauds such as Samoly Mam and William Hillar.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/man-who-profited-from-fabricated-military-resume-is-sentenced-to-21-months/2011/08/30/gIQAnKHfqJ_story.html?utm_term=.017ffacbcce7

When no one would believe me that Samoly Mam was not only a fraud, but further conning people out of millions of dollars that could have been used to help REAL victims of sex trafficking, I went knocking on doors until I found a team of investigators willing to put together a file so thick that NewsWeek did a cover story on the whole scheme.  

When William was running around inspiring people to make up false films like "Taken" for example, not only was he also conning people out of money meant to help REAL sex trafficking victims, but he was further taking advantage of the goodwill people have towards veterans.  That's of course what got him some jail time for his lying about having rescued victims of sex trafficking when he had not.  

When Annie Lombert got herself on a reality show on Bravo by lying to them about having a rescue program when in fact she did not, I was able to show the producers verification there was no program in time to have her show removed after only one episode of "Saved on the Strip".  

However, she was STILL getting herself booked on Christian programming INCLUDING the Joyce Meyer show.  Joyce Meyer has had even more frauds on her show than Annie.  She even recently was speaking at churches helping to raise money for another fraud - Kevin Brown of "8 Minutes" fame.  Yet another show I had taken off the air after only a few episodes because of the way it was being used to fleece Christians out of money for a completely fake program.  

But the frauds just keep coming down the line.  I've spoken recently to Shanna Poteet https://www.facebook.com/gray.castle.52 who came to me because I was trying to warn people about Melissa Woodward with "For the Sake of One" back in 2014.  Kind of hard to convince people someone's lying when they're on the 700 Club.  

Which is why I've been talking to people such as Shanna about how I think criminal and civil charges should be filed naming the shows as "co-conspirators" in these fraud cases.

You know why?  I'm a Christian.  I'm an ordained minister.  I got ordained to make sure what victims of real sex trafficking tell me can remain "confidential" even if an investigation is going on.  I'm not only a minister, but I've also had a genuine spiritual experience very similar to what Bill Wilson had when he created AA and Jimmy Kinnon had when he created NA.  I spoke about this experience when interviewed by John Quinones of ABC's "What Would You Do?" which was published in his book "Heroes Among Us".  A copy of that chapter is attached in case you don't want to wade through all my news clips at www.hightechmadam.com

The Bible teaches us how to "judge a tree by it's fruit" to discern whether or not such experiences are truly spiritual and not the enemy deceiving us.  Because as you know Satan can also appear as an angel of light with false signs and miracles.  

Our program has however been producing fruit - we've been producing such people as Kathleen Mitchell who founded Dignity in Arizona, Brenda Myers-Powell who created Division 17 in Chicago, Paige Latin who created  PACE in Canada, Norma Hotaling who created  SAGE in San Francisco, and even our program has been a part of the Second Chance program created by professor Celia Williamson who partnered with the Salvation Army in Ohio.  Those are just a few of the names of people I can talk about because they've been public about receiving their help to leave sex work and find recovery through our program and hotline over the 30 years now we've been operating.  

I could go on as one of our newer members just gave an interview with the Epoch Times about how we've helped her break her connection with pimps and the sex industry just a few days ago -   http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/2219740-escaping-prostitution-2/  I have more interviews with members who we've helped at www.leavingtheliferadio.com  This woman is starting a chapter of our program - www.sexworkersanonymous.com in Portland - a town that has the largest number of strip clubs in the country I should add.

But where is my interview on your shows?  So far every fraud including Melissa Woodward has been featured on your respective shows/stations where the publicity and "stamp of approval" has allowed them to fleece people now out of MILLIONS of dollars and also siphon real help from real victims for THIRTY YEARS NOW.  

Which is why I'm advocating some of your stations actually be charged in these criminal and civil cases against them because I think it's pretty obvious you have to be getting something out of this.  I mean why else ALL of them - but not one single interview, not one minute, not a blip or a bleep anywhere on your programming about the person and program who started the whole movement - which is me.  That news clip about my arrest in 1984 documents that I was arrested because of the first safe house set up for adult sex trafficking victims in this country.  There is no one who pre-dates me to the work which led to the Trafficking Act of 2000 giving the issue of domestic sex trafficking federal recognition.

You all know about my work and me because I've sent you each information and a request to come onto your shows.  So why not?  I've sent you information on the criminal charges brought against some of the people you have had on your shows and again offered to come on and let people hear about what we're doing to help real victims with a real program by also someone who is a Christian with Christian experiences to talk about.  

But I don't get a call.  Which is leading me to believe there must be something deliberate and intentional going on here.  If I'm wrong - call me.  Book me on the show.  I think 30 years of work behind me is enough to warrant five minutes of air time don't you think?  Especially when the people you have had on the show can't produce one actual person they've helped and all they've done with the press you gave them was line their pockets with money.

I'm not holding a fund raiser.  I don't have a "gofundme" site and I'm not holding a walkathon.  I just do what God tells me to do and I see the fruits of that work in changed lives.  If that isn't good enough to be interviewed on one of your shows/stations - then something is very wrong here and needs to be investigated.

GOT TO HAVE A GIMMICK


Can't hook anymore?  Get yourself a gimmick.  

Let's convince people bars of soap with the National Trafficking Hotline number on it saves trafficking victims.   Only guess what?  If someone can pick up a phone and call for help THEY AREN'T BEING FORCED THEN ARE THEY?  If they're in a hotel room and they can call for help it does mean they're not being supervised, and they can move freely.  Where I come from a trafficking victim can't call for help. That's the definition.  I ought to know because I FOUNDED THE MOVEMENT.  A movement founded because our victims couldn't call for help and get any.   Is there anyone walking around saying they got saved from a trafficking ring by calling the number off a bar of soap?  It sure is making money for Theresa Flores though.  A woman who says she willingly left her house to meet with a pimp and run off to prostitute.  I'm sorry but in "the game" where I come from I know a hustle when I see one.  There's 911 and there's yellow pages.  But if Theresa can get people to buy her soap and think it "saves lives" - let's give her the "gimmick award" for a new hustle.

We got "Hookers for Jesus" who goes out and takes the hookers out of the pimps house where the johns are paying their bills for them to put them in her house where she's getting old men to pay their bills at her house.  Got to have a gimmick.  Instead of parading women around in the brothel - she's parading them around the church stage.  Not to set them up in their OWN homes, but in HER HOUSE.  Over a million dollars was donated to Pastor Perez who then filed bankruptcy.  The judge then basically said something had to be set up or someone was going to jail so they set up the house but then they were out asking for people to donate a TV set?  Got to have a gimmick.  Want to quit prostitution and don't want to work?  Got get yourself some work out hookers, put them in your house, and then pimp them out to the church.  Either way you slice it these women still aren't working a job and in their own homes and on their own two feet.  They're still having other people take care of them and Annie still isn't working a job.  Mama's just got a new hustle.

Retire from prostitution, and open up a salon and a bakery but that's not enough is it?  No - you need to go out asking for grants and donations to go out and give cash and makeovers to active hookers and strippers.  Sure they'll take it.  Does it help them quit the biz?  No but then you got that covered - you just tell the press you're "loving them unconditionally".  Where I come from if you love an addict unconditionally and give them cash they'll go out and use on that money and die.  Now if these women are giving their money to their pimp - wouldn't that money then go right to their pimp?  Isn't "loving them right where they are" mean letting them stay right with their pimp?   I look at the money people can make in the bakery biz on shows like "Cake Boss" and with hair salons with what the guy who made "Wen" hair products is doing and is Joy Hoover out making six figures a year doing hair or baking cupcakes?  No - she's hanging around strip clubs getting tips without taking her clothes off. What a hustle!  Too bad she's taking money out of the pocket of the women who are shaking their ass for their tips.  But Joy's got a hustle - show up with "cupcakes" talking about Jesus!

Shelley Lubben's got her "Pink Cross" t-shirts - aren't they cute?  She treats porn stars like the ASPCA treats abused animals - she parades around porn stars who had had a bad streak and tells the donors her "trafficking porn" stories of how they've been "beaten, raped, abused, overdosed, trafficked" and please help us go give them a pink cross t-shirt, or better yet make a video of dead porn stars while asking for money.  I've never seen so many images of beaten up, used up, fucked up porn stars with Shelley having her hand out in my life = I swear she's created a new form of porn.  That's her "gimmick".

I could go on but what's the common denominator here?  Pimps make money exploiting these men and women.  I'm sorry but to me what I'm seeing here is just a costume change.  We all know that one can be in the sex industry without having intercourse.  This is just the new hybrid evolvement of a new form of exploitation because it's not rescue, it's not recovery, and it sure isn't a "program.

I want to point you to professor Sharon Oselin's 10 year study on three programs that work with prostitutes "Leaving Prostitution". One of the programs she studied over 10 years was ours.  The other two folded before the end of the study. That says a lot right there.   We have a solid program and I'm not running around applying for grants, holding fund raisers, or trying to sell you a bar of soap and convince you it saves trafficking victims.  Got to tell you - it's a great hustle though!

Dear New Hope Foundation, Congo Justice, Cupcake Girls, Purple Wings, Awaken Reno, and Hookers for Jesus, Street Teens, Salvation Army:

I'm writing you about the situation concerning people who go online looking for help for themselves, or for someone they care about.  

When I type in the following key words in Google which when I ask callers what are the key words they  used to find us these appear to be the most typical:

help to leave prostitution Las Vegas or Nevada
help to stop stripping in Las Vegas or Nevada
help to leave porn industry in Las Vegas or Nevada
recovery groups from prostitution in Las Vegas and Nevada
recovery from sex trafficking in Las Vegas and Nevada
escape from sex trafficking in Las Vegas and Nevada

These are pretty much the key words that people who are looking for help online who are in some part of Nevada usually type in.  While granted they may type in the names of your respective groups - not everyone looking for help does this.  

Also, many people report to me when they reach our hotline that they did in fact tried to reach your group first.  It was after trying to reach out to your group, then getting no answer, that they then started going on Google to search for alternatives. That's when they'll type in those keywords.  
When people type in those keywords - that's when they find contact information for our hotline.  

Now when googling for the Southern Nevada Sex Trafficking Task Force one comes upon:



http://congojusticelv.org/th_event/snhttf-annual-conference/ where the contact information is Congo Justice.  Then there's the conference in October but I was told that was postponed.  I have not been told when a new date has been set yet either.

We were in the Polaris directory for Las Vegas - but I threw them with the move to Los Angeles.  I think they got confused but I'm sure they'll fix the listing shortly.   Meaning that our program will show back up in there soon.  In the meantime however, the only program showing up for Las Vegas is the Hookers for Jesus Program.  The problem with that however is I keep getting calls from people telling me they're not always answering all their calls or emails. 

I don't answer every call immediately either - but I return calls I miss within 24 hours and I answer all emails within 48 hours.

I can't answer every call immediately because we have no answering service.  To ensure that only a survivor answer the phone - sometimes that means I'm answering the phone overnight.  This means sometimes I'm sleeping on the phone!  It would be nice to get more survivors to help out with the hotline but the majority of our members who can answer the phone (not worried about their voices being recognized) are working and therefore either are at work or are also sleeping. 

Here's some problems we're running into when people are looking for help in Nevada:

1.  Awaken Reno:  All I know is what I'm told by people who call our hotline.  Whenever I go onto the site I see a lot of information on fund raisers.  I've had women needing help tell me they've left messages asking for help and have received no answers.  Aubrey is the woman who testified at the legislature in 2013 who actually defeated the brothel's push to expand into Las Vegas by telling them her experience working in the brothels.  She went in by herself after all the other 45 "abolition" groups had gone home after the AB67 hearing was done.   She was a little shook up by the whole thing - especially when she went home to find her power, TV, internet, phone and cable cut off for three days as mine had been after my press conference I gave in 2007 about sex trafficking in the brothels.  Awaken Reno advertises counseling and they are close to her so I called and asked that she please receive counseling.   She was promised counseling and she reported to me that she received a return phone call but no one called her back with an appointment.  

About a week after she left that message, she came home to find everything she owned stolen, and a death threat against her family by the brothel owners who were already angry about the brothel expansion and wanted to make sure she dropped the ground breaking case she was about to file against her pimp for trafficking her while she was working at the Shady Lady.  She wanted to pursue him anyway - but when they sold the Shady Lady we knew they'd scattered the witnesses and evidence so i would be very hard to do so once the club had closed.

Since then I've had four other women say they've left message with AR asking for services to get no answer.  I've left message for 10 women needing services and never got a return phone call or email.  

I've received calls from four people who received volunteer training to do outreach but then never got to do any outreach.  

I've received calls from other ex-prostitutes who wanted to hold SWA meetings but needed help finding a meeting hall.  I suggested they contact AR to ask if they had a meeting space and they've reported back that no one answered their calls either.  I see the site changing so it appears that AR is an active site.  

2.  Carson City, Reno, Lake Tahoe, Pahrump, Las Vegas, Henderson, and Sparks Police - I've left emails with flyers with the police departments for these cities letting them know if they have any prostitutes, or family members, or even police officers, who need help with someone wanting help to leave the sex industry, or to escape trafficking - they can reach us for assistance.  I've also let them know that www.childrenofthenight.org will fly out anyone under 18 years of age to them free and they've been around 18 years of age.  Metro has called a few times to Children of the Night - however, one time they called the girl a "whore".  Another time they called about a child abuse victim and said "isn't that the same thing?" 

Now that these officers are no longer with the force - I will let you know of my experiences with them briefly.  

Chief Gillispie - I tried to go to him with stories the women were telling me about being trafficked only to be ignored and rebuffed.  One of these agencies was one called "Pretty Maids".   They were sending out women who were then telling their "johns" they were being trafficked and the johns could "buy their contracts for $120,000".  Some of the johns were buying these contracts - only to then have the women laugh in their faces.  When two of the johns tried to go to the Chief about this - he refused to look at any of the evidence.  

In the Chris Butler Case, I had information I'd spent a year gathering and witnesses who wanted to testify.  I knew of the locations of the brothels, and the bondage parlors.   I also knew they were having "valets" park the men's more expensive cars, only to then have mechanics take out the very expensive parts and replace them with cheap generics.   Then when they'd fail - the men would have no idea what happened.  They would then take the guns, drugs, stolen parts, and the women and transport them in police cars from Mexico, up through San Diego, through San Mateo, then to Vegas.  From Vegas, they would go in a straight line to Kentucky where they're rest a few days and then go back again.  The good parts were then resold through Auto Zone stores in Califonia through a connection at about $30,000 a week in parts.  They were also doing this to trucks at Bikefest and other concerts.  One of the men was doing sound at the concerts down on Fremont Street.

When I handed all of this information with names, addresses, routes, etc., to Chief Gillispie - within 24 hours everything was cleared out and shut down to the point where the houses had been scrubbed with bleach.  i know because one of the pregnant 13 year old girls showed up at my mother's house because they had kicked her out and she had nowhere to go.   They didn't want to get caught with her - so they just cast her out.  I got her into Children of the Night.  Clearly the Chief could not be trusted so I waited until the police were having an event and I figured they would be doing a drop.

I had a reporter friend arrange to do a "ride along" that weekend. He did. Like we did with Chris Butler when we couldn't get the police to take action, we got one of his agents to go to the media and "shamed" the authorities into taking action.  The reporter did this ride along and then said 'let's do a surprise raid".  That surprise was Operation Dollhouse.  Despite the fact 24 women and baggies of drugs were found in those private homes with mattresses on the floor - they didn't take the women into custody and refused to question them and let them go before ATLAS could question them.  The case against the cops was dropped.  So much for Chief Gillispie.  Granted he later stepped down.

Vic Vigna was head of Vice.  I had seven prostitutes who said he raped them.  I was trying to press charges.  The FBI agent threatened me with locking me up or psychiatric observation if I pushed and Terri Miller refused to open a file into their complaints.  No one at Washington would speak to me about their charges.  Vic of course started spreading the rumor that I was "crazy" but I kept pushing anyway on behalf of these women who said that Vic would threaten to arrest them if they didn't put out to him. I got into a heated argument with his supervisor and Karen Hughes, who was a dispatcher, was made head of Vice.  

There was no Internal Affairs then.  The only IA then was Chief Gillispie.   Karen was friendly to me during the interview for the report Melissa Farley did on sex trafficking.  The day after the press conference however, she stopped speaking to me.  

I had a woman call the hotline who had fresh information on the Jessie Foster case.  The detective on the case wouldn't return my calls while the information was fresh.  She said she knew where Jessie was and was going to have her call me in three days.  When the Detective wouldn't speak to me - i tried to get Karen to speak to me.  She refused.  I again went to everyone- FBI, Washington, everyone - and got nowhere.  This was when Karen was made head of Internal Affairs.  I then went to file a complaint about the detective who wouldn't look at the information I have coming in while it was fresh.  Her response was to tell me to "stop speaking to her" and she cut me off at that point and never spoke to me again.

I had documented cases where I was having 13 year old girls calling me up talking about being pimped out of cars lots over on Boulder Highway so I would of course contact Metro and get no response.  I'd contact Karen and get no response.  I would contact Lou Pascoe and got no response.  I saved all my documentation of trying to reach everyone in Nevada when getting these types of calls and getting nowhere.  Then with the 13 year old girls - I just went and picked them up myself and took them to Children of the Night. I wasn't comfortable driving teenage prostitutes by myself - but it's not like Metro really gave me any choice.  I wasn't going to leave them out there.  With the 13 year olds - I also would leave messages with Hookers for Jesus and get no response as well as Purple Wings and Salvation Army.   When I finally did get a call back from Internal Affairs last month - I was told that since Vic, Gillispie, and Karen are no longer officers at Metro there's "nothing they can do.

When Aubrey told me she was being raped weekly by the officer coming to pick up the HIV test results, I went to check who to complain to and learned that he was the Chief and the website said all complaints had to be filed with the Chief.  She wasn't going to do that. 

3.  Salvation Army - I get no response to my calls or emails.  Whenever I have a victim in Nevada in need of housing over 18 I contact them to ask about housing.  I keep records documenting these attempts to reach out for help and the lack of response.  I've had as many as four women sitting on my couch at a time that I've had to figure out housing for that I've gotten no call back or response to email about.  I've emailed the main emails, the private emails, every email I can and left messages on every phone number that I have.  There's no way these women are going to stand outside the Shade Tree to get assistance there. I've also done the same with Lou Pascoe, and the task force when I've had victims needing help as well as Hookers for Jesus and ATLAS.  With ATLAS I documented over 30 attempts to get help for victims they refused to even discuss with me because they were "not referred by Metro".

4.  Congo Justice - in all your talk about sex trafficking what I've never had anyone report back to me at your events that you've mentioned one word about is the fact that's very crucial with respect to NEVADA victims of trafficking:

a.    The legal age of consent in this state is 16 years of age.  In fact, one can get a license to work at a brothel or a strip club at 16.  A man can have sex with a 16 year old and it's legal.  There have been cases where a girl has runaway in one state and then she's "legal" in Nevada.   A 16 year old girl can't vote, drink, smoke, or drive legally in this state yet she's being driven down to the licensing board and her virginity is being auctioned off for $1,000,000.   When these 16 year old girls arrive at the legal brothels, not driven by themselves, they're told they can't leave the property for 48 hours or they'll be arrested. 

 If they left anyway - there's no payphones, no cabs, no buses, no homes or businesses to go into and call for help. http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/las-vegas/limo-ceo-aides-plead-guilty-las-vegas-racketeering-conspiracy  Do you see that?  For years we had a deal with cab drivers to go in and pick these girls up for free.  The brothel owners saw this and bought the cabs.  Then told the drivers they'd fire them if they drove any woman to us.  When a man set up a "gypsy" cab service - they ran him out of service.  When I had an RV - they put a bomb in it.  I'm lucky it broke down before it went off.  They also trashed our car.  I finally have another one.  

 If they call the National Trafficking Hotline - there's no crime.  Even if there was - the hotline would then tell them what?  Hookers for Jesus is the only one listed on their site and you don't transport.  No resource on the Nevada Attorney General site transports.  The Salvation Army doesn't transport.  OUR PROGRAM IS THE ONLY ONE THAT TRANSPORTS - but not one of your programs is in any open communication with us for some reason.  They threatened off our volunteers who would pick up women but we have a car again SO we are back to being the only program I'm aware of that transports women from the clubs, the brothels, etc., to a safe house or the airport or wherever they need to go to get out of there.

I'd like to see that change.  But it's hard to do when Congo Justice is holding the events and not discussing the fact that the domestic violence shelters, and the safe houses and trafficking programs in Nevada, drug treatment programs in Nevada, aren't transporting or paying for cabs to transport the women to them.

b.  Congo Justice isn't discussing the fact SWA offers alternative sentencing.  Why is this important?  Couple of reasons:

    1.       When a woman is released from jail and she has nowhere to go, no home, etc., the pimps can scoop her up.  However, if instead of jail she's in our program this isn't going to happen.

    2.        When a woman thinks all she has to face is jail - you would think she has a public defender that would tell her she can go to SWA right?  Wrong.  The jail gets $75 a day for each inmate meaning UNLESS SHE ASKS to attend a SWA meeting they're going to keep her and keep the money.  Now if she asks - there's law on the books that allows her to not only do this but to even get bailed out to do this. It's all in the judge's discretion.   Now if she can come to us instead of jail - she's not going to lose her home, her kids, her pets, her job, or possibly even violate her probation in another state. So it's important that woman charged with prostitution KNOW they can ask for SWA as an alternative to sentencing.  

        Now certainly criminal defense lawyers would want the women to know about this right? Not.  As a matter of fact, the Cupcake Girls has a lobbyist who also is the lobbyist for the Nevada Defense Attorney's Association.  Why would they care?  Because we've been helping women expunge their records without hiring an attorney for a minimum of $2500 and up.  Most women who "go straight' don't have that kind of money and I don't know how can "prove trafficking".  I can't.  But we get their rent receipts for a year, proof of working for a year, proof of attending our meetings for a year, along with school and volunteer records and so far the judges have allowed our members to do this.  Another issue is if a woman thinks she's facing jail - she's likely to be scared enough to cough up $2500 and up for a retainer for a criminal lawyer to try and save them from jail.  Only if Congo Justice worked with Nevada prostitutes - they'd know that every criminal lawyer in Vegas and Carson City has asked for sexual favors along with cash in exchange for defending prostitutes.  Meaning that going to retain an attorney for a prostitute usually means sexual harassment.  Which is why I started helping them out in the first place - so they didn't have to have sex with someone to get legal assistance if they didn't want to.  Am I wrong?  Go ask one.  I know what I'm told and that's what they tell me.  Is it true?  No idea.  I encourage them to file a complaint but if they don't want to I can't force them.  All I can do is offer that if arrested for prostitution they can come to our meetings instead of jail and to expunge their records - I can try and help them.  

    Which is another way that these women are "pimped".  The attorney's make payment arrangements with them and then the women make these payments, along with sexual favors. Meaning essentually their attorney's are their pimps.  You want to reduce the pimping?  Then we need to get more of them in alternative sentencing.  Something I'm not able to discuss at any of Congo Justice's meetings because I keep not being invited.  

c.      You want to reduce pimping in Nevada?  Do something about the fact these women can't get their own money from the brothels.  Their "managers" are getting it and that means they can't leave because they don't have any money.  Also meaning that when they finally want to really leave with us - we can't get any of their money.   The brothel owners will not let it go.  We've had to take every woman out of the brothels without a dime - really hard.  You want to reduce their control?  Stop their control over the money.  Something again they don't talk about with respect to Nevada victims!

d.    You want to reduce pimping in Nevada?  Then create an orientation at the licensing board about trafficking and make sure they get the numbers for the trafficking hotline.  BUT REMEMBER it's NOT "trafficking" at the brothels - so please be sure they get OUR phone number as our phone number is for those who "want to leave the sex industry".  Which by the way is why we cover BOTH.  In a trafficking situation there's a crime.  There has to be a crime in order for the police to come out to file a report.   You're a stripper at a strip club and you want out of there?  You call the National Trafficking Hotline and guess what?  No crime.  You call the police and guess what?  No crime.  They can't help you because there's no crime.   MEANING if you "want help to leave the sex industry you call Sex Workers Anonymous".    Why do you think Kemp Shiffer got away with what he did for 12 years?  BECAUSE IT WAS LEGAL.  He was driving 16 year old girls from California to Nevada to work in the brothels and it was LEGAL.
5.     Cupcake Girls:  We have a few issues to discuss here.  First of of all:

    a.    There is no problem for strippers to get work in Nevada if they have a criminal record. Go into any employment agency or HR Dept. at a large casino and you will get a sheet of paper with a list of crimes they will and will not hire for.  Basically as long as it's not fraud or violence - you can get hired.   The problem with their PR stunt is that now we are hearing of strippers who believe this nonsense and now aren't thinking of even trying to look for jobs.   So how are we now going to get the word out to every stripper in Nevada that isn't true?  

    b.    They're fund raisers are not only NOT helping anyone leave the sex industry I have phone calls verifying they've been used for drugs.  The $5000 that they gave to "Kamylla" not only was a scam because she didn't owe rent and she had a free attorney and she wasn't even on the show in th first place, but we got two phone calls in saying the money was used on a drug binge.  Who in their right mind hands $5000 cash to a prostitute with a history of drug use I have no idea!

    The money raised for Heather - we were told she used so many drugs she almost died and is now in rehab because she almost died.  We were called by a friend of the woman asking us "why did they give her so much money?"  I mean people know not to give homeless people that much money - why would you give a working girl that's probably using that much cash you don't know?  The phone calls we got said this almost killed her.

    Raising money for active prostitutes that's going towards drugs - well that's just not helping anyone.  These women are capable of making money.  That's not what they need from us when they come to us - they come to JOHNS for that.  I don't know about you but I AM NOT JOHN and I don't pay a hookers rent.  I think she's perfectly capable of that.   What she's not capable of when she comes to us is STOPPING.  

    This is NOT Christian.  When Jesus saved Mary HE DID NOT TELL HER "you go on doing what you were doing".  He also did NOT put her in a house and pay her bills either!   He told her "go and sin no more".   Then he brought her on a teaching journey.  That's what Jesus did.

    We're in the middle of an HIV epidemic - and I see no free HIV home test kits being given out - just cupcakes.  I don't see the trafficking hotline on the wrappers.   Offering to teach a stripper how to bake is insulting. In their mind if you're doing so well at it - why are you asking them for money?

    Now I want to talk about the ex-strippers that she's blocking them from working.  Women who own salons in Vegas, and who sell make-up and make-up artistry in Vegas who get their clients by going in and doing make-overs who are telling me they're now having to compete with Joy giving free makeovers.  She's now taking clients and business away from women trying to make a living outside of sex work with these free make-overs and it's got to stop.  There is another woman in Vegas also who owns a bakery that she's competing with.  She doesn't want to break her anonymity either - she shouldn't have to.   If she was doing this as outreach - that's one thing - but she's sitting in bars getting tips and she's not shaking her ass for it which has the strippers now upset.  A bartender has now started a fundraiser against her because she's right - Joy's coming into her business and putting her down and interfering with her job.  That bartender is not taking anything off and Joy's interfering in her tips. You don't see AA going into bars - it's not outreach.  It's undercutting other make-up artists and salon owners and another bake shop owner.   I had offered to sit down and help and work with her when she swept into town and she didn't want to talk to me for this reason.  Keep it up Joy and you might find a restraining order like some of the club owners are doing against women like you in other cities.  It doesn't work.   I did research on "faith based" outreach when I started SWA 30 years ago and IT DOESN'T WORK.  Look back behind you - and for sex workers the odds are against it working. You want to evangalize - evangalize.  You want to promote your business - promote your business.   But stop ceiling it "trafficking" because you want a grant when you don't know what you're doing!  Now you got women thinking they can't get jobs outside of stripping and they aren't even trying?  Do you know how hard that's going to be to undo?

I see your group's fund raising.  What I don't see if a hotline that these women can call and get help they can't get for themselves.  What I don't see is help for those who need help.  What i don't see is help for those who can't get it elsewhere.  

I want you to think about the typical types of calls I get - about every Friday night I get a call like this:  a woman has told her pimp she's pregnant and she wants to quit.  He's thrown her out of a moving car at 75 mph on the highway.  She has nothing and one shoe left on her foot from the fall. She's calling me collect from a payphone.   She's going to have to be checked out by a doctor and then a place to sleep for th night.   It's now 1:00 a.m.  Everyone is closed and closed for the weekend.  She no money and no ID and no family.   She's over past Lake Mead meaning there's not even a bus she can try and talk her way onto.   If she wanted to testify against the pimp she doesn't know where he's at now. 

That's the kind of call I get every Friday and frankly I'm tired of handling these calls alone.  They get onto their smart phones and they call until someone answers.  I answer.

I usually get her a place to sleep for the night and then on Saturday morning everyone is out at fund raisers, walkathons, showing a film, or who knows because I can't reach anyone.  From what I've seen all of you have raised a nice chunk of money.  

You know what I've raised this year, and last year?  Nothing.   

Now I imagine you talk to a lot of people.  The name of the game is HOW MANY ARE YOU GETTING OUT.  That's what I want to know. 

And when I get a woman telling me a cop is pimping her - I want to know where to report that.  

Now these are points I wanted to bring up at the October meeting but I got told it was "postponed".  It's now January and I haven't heard of a new meeting.  Okay, Congo Justice, please forward this to anyone else running groups now in Nevada please.

Because each time the money runs out or the bill gets passed - a whole bunch of you leave.  Only I'm still here, still answering the phone, and still working with these men and women.    

And right now there's an even harder problem because I've been getting calls from cops for about two years now advising me they want to help the prostitute but each time they've tried to give them my phone number - they get their job threatened.  Why?  

Because they've been trying to cover this up that's why.   http://lasvegastribune.net/clark-county-court-patricia-doninger-youre-fire/ Okay here's the catch-22.  They tell everyone from the staff, to the clerks, to the probation officers, the cops, the social workers, etc. they tell them "don't refer anyone to Sex Workers Anonymous - don't do anything".  Then when they "don't do anything" they still get fired.

Do you know another reaso why they tell them "don't refer them to SWA?"  http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/las-vegas-psychiatric-clinic-closes-under-federal-pressure  Because this center was not licensed for months.  Why?  Because they had an apartment building full of prostitutes they were giving experimental medications to that were "off label" that Medicaid was refusing to pay for.  When I went to ask why someone with PTSD was on an epileptic medication - not only was the clinic shut down the next day but everyone was thrown out of the apartment on th next day.  So the prostitutes in the jail and the mental health system were being experimented on and used like lab rents.  That wasn't the first time I found them doing this either.

So when someone is scared and shutting us out because we're trying to take care of these women - then maybe it's because they're hiding something - http://www.laweekly.com/news/a-drug-rehab-mogul-built-an-empire-that-s-now-being-probed-by-the-fbi-da-and-state-of-california-6390686  

Trust me - there's a lot of ways that men prey upon these women. And pimps aren't the only ones.  They're coming to us for help to get out - meaning sometimes we have to protect them from cops, doctors, therapists costs, etc.

The task force is receiving money to create a TASK FORCE not to arrest pimps - but to find help for these women. Now arresting two pimps last year was great - but it's not good enough.  I haven't run the numbers yet - but off hand I think we processed over 400 calls from Nevada and 200 calls from Californiia.  I haven't figured out the rest.  I know I got about 20 from from Miami and another 50 from Atlanta.    When I figure out how many we helped to get out from sex work.

Now if we can't get it together enough to sit down and figure out a system to help these women - then what are the people who are giving you money getting for their buck?  The Son of God taught us to be servants when He washed His disciples feet.  So you tell me - what can I do to get something going to where I can get more help to these men and women in Nevada?

Dear Concerned Parties:

First let me introduce myself. My name is Jody Williams. After a high profile arrest where I was dubbed the “High Tech Madam” in 1984 (clippings you can read at www.hightechmadam.com) – I was finally able to find help to leave what I had been lured into myself in 1985. While in the sex industry – people knew they could get help to get away from pimps and traffickers from me. Still wanting to help, but not wanting to go back to sex work to do so - in 1987, I founded the first 12 step program called “Prostitutes Anonymous”, the first hotline for those seeking help to leave sex work (trafficked or not), and stepped up to demand our legal system change to acknowledge that not all of us were “criminals” but some in fact were victims being forced to do what they were doing. Thus I am the founder of the modern day sex trafficking movement itself I would like to add here.

Before I started our program – I was friends with Margo St. James, the founder of COYOTE, which later transformed into the St. James Infirmary when she retired. This was a sex workers rights group who also believed sex work was a career choice – and that people shouldn't be forced or trafficked. Her group was set up to help the sex worker – not to help them leave. We both agreed women should not be hunted down and locked up like criminals either. But she couldn't form an “alternative to sentencing” until we could get the laws changed. After talking with the California governor who told us we'd “never see the day when prostitutes are not arrested – but we could at least see they didn't have to go to jail by forming a 12 step program like how NA does for the addict” - we decided to form PA.

Thus the modern day sex trafficking movement was born. We changed our name in 1995 to “Sex Workers Anonymous” because the internet was blocking people from finding us because of adult filters not recognizing the word “prostitute” - and also to acknowledge the very real fact that not all seeking help from us were people selling physical intercourse for money.

So we were the first people to put together an HIV/AIDS outreach into the sex industry, to demand condoms not be considered “evidence of a crime”, the first alternative sentencing and diversion program, the first training for counselors, social workers, etc. in how to work with us properly, as well the first residential programs, the first “safe houses”, and the first “rescue” operations. Since most of the children we were finding being forced into prostitution were having this happen at the hands of their parents and/or guardians – we started referring anyone under legal age to Children of the Night – which was the only program around in 1987 equipped to handle this type of child and problem.

The other people I'm writing you about are Tom Forman, Kevin Brown, Maxine Doogan, Domina Elle, D'lita Miller, the Cupcake Girls, Abeni, Hookers for Jesus, and a woman calling herself “Kamylla” online. To understand the players in this letter – let me briefly introduce them also.

TOM FORMAN:
He is the man who produced the show “8 Minutes”, as well as “Catfish”, “OC Jails”, “Intervention” and “Gigolo's” through Relativity Media.

Kevin Brown:
Founded “Side by Side Church” after having been an Orange County officer. He was the host of the show “8 Minutes” and supposed “rescuer”. He says in interviews he “found God” after he retired – but the church paperwork was registered in California in 1994. Interesting since sex trafficking wasn't federal recognized until 2000 with the Trafficking Act of 2000.

Maxine Doogan
She's a dominatrix that runs the Erotic Service Provider Legal Educational Research – a nonprofit based out of San Francisco that's also filing a lawsuit to have prostitution decriminalized again after a failed attempt in 2008. She's also a convicted pimp according to one interview about this. The Case number for that lawsuit is 15 CV 01007. Her EIN # is 27-2049888 for ESPLER.

Domina Elle
A dominatrix based out of Denver, Colorado. However, she has phones registered in Pennsylvania, a travel agency registered out of Kentucky and California, and various other locations. She is doing business under the legal name of “Shekinah Avraam” who actually died in 2007. There is a voter registration showing her birthdate as 1966 – but again the person who is the owner of that name was born years earlier according to the obituary. Supposedly the real “Shekinah” worked with Domina Elle according to her Linkedin profile. She has a website at www.dominaelle.com for her dungeon. I have a phone report I got from Intelius available if you'd like to see it listing some of her addresses across the United States, along with phone numbers and emails she's used also.

D'Lita Miller
In interviews she says she was a legal assistant who had no idea about sex trafficking until her daughter was trafficked in one interview – while in another she admits she had been a prostitute herself when she was younger. She was told by the police “there were no resources” so she set about to create a program called “Families Against Sex Trafficking”. She says she was a “consultant” whose input was “ignored” by the producers of “8 Minutes”. When I spoke to Ms. Miller about a week before she went onto CNN to do the segment “The Truth Behind “8 Minutes” with Jennifer Pozner, she told me that her biggest “frustration” was “not having any resources for the trafficking victims she works with”. I told her that was strange because there were a lot of resources available in California especially and I offered to show her these resources. She declined and then stopped returning my calls and email after I insisted there were resources available.

Cupcake Girls:
A program that opened a Las Vegas branch in 2012 according to news interviews. Their goal is to provide “help” to sex trafficking victims in Las Vegas. Recently, they appeared at the Nevada legislature in order to get a bill passed allowing those convicted of prostitution to have their records expunged by the claim that these women were “unable to find work” because of their criminal records. I've been placing prostitutes in jobs since 1996 when I relocated to Nevada, and I have a list of companies that will hire not only ex-prostitutes, but those with drug charges and even felonies. When I offered to give them a copy of this list to refer their clients to work – they declined. Clearly they're not interested in clearing these womens' records in order to find them work. This group is a front. I say that because I've also helped many a prostitute expunge their records, and also help them get work cards WITHOUT having to put down $5000 for an attorney. There is no reason for this bill other than because the legal brothels require that no one with a conviction for prostitution can be licensed AND the fact their paid lobbyist also happens to represent the Las Vegas Defense Attorney's.

Abeni:
A group in Orange County founded by Meg Munoz. Abeni is about “harm reduction” and believes in mixing sex trafficking victims with currently active sex workers according to interviews she's given. She is listed as a program utilized by the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force. Out of absolutely nowhere, with me saying nothing to her to warrant this accusation – Meg started saying online that I was “stalking her” and that she was “afraid for her life”. She then started trying to find out where I lived so that I could be hauled off on a 5150 charge. Not a light thing considering what happened to Sandra Bland after she was taken into custody after her comments about law enforcement. I have screen shots of our exact conversation SHE initiated to prove I said nothing to her that would warrant either of her accusations against me. The woman is clearly trying to do this to try and “squash the competition” to what her program is offering sex workers which from what I can see isn't much.

Kamylla:
A woman who claims to be the only “non-American” woman filmed for the show “8 Minutes” who has now had multiple fund raisers given for her now online driven by Maxine Doogan and Domina Elle – two women who claim to be active sex workers. She is supposedly married, with multiple children under the age of 18 years old she's raising along with her also out of work husband who was portrayed as her pimp on the show supposedly. I say “supposedly” because I have not seen the episode.

SITUATION I'M CONCERNED ABOUT
About March of 2014, I received a call from a man claiming to be working with Kevin Brown. The story he gave me was this man had been a cop for 20 years, then after retiring he “found God”, and decided he wanted to go help the prostitutes he'd seen while on the beat. That he put together a program, and was now calling up prostitutes to a hotel room where he was then offering them “help”. That if they said “yes” he was taking them out to a compound in New Mexico he'd put together, getting them cleaned up, and off the streets. He said that “word was out” that they were doing this “sting” and now they couldn't get women to come to the hotel rooms and they wanted me to send them women to a hotel where they would then be offered help. Honestly – I thought this was a pimp calling me up at first or some cult. I mean he's “taking women out to some ranch in New Mexico”?

Now when I first started our program – it was not easy, not easy at all, to get these men and women to stop the “revolving door”. I mean we saw right off they'd put some time together, and then “relapse”. When we went to look for help from someone to show us how to stop this constant “relapse” - we found nothing. We found nothing because no one even understood how the sex industry worked back in the 1980's – let alone how to solve these problems. So truly we had to learn to invent the wheel about this. It took me YEARS to learn how to build a program that actually “worked” and this guy just sets his cap to it and suddenly he knows how to break this cycle? Plus what about the pimps that would come looking for these women? Nothing was jivving about this story. So I asked to see this with my own eyes – him, the survivors, the program, the house - everything.

The first thing I did was ask what types of jobs he was getting his “success stories” into. I got told that they were now being employed by the church to do these outreaches. I'm like “wait a minute – so you haven't actually got these women working and self-sufficient then if you're paying them?” To which he said yes. Again, it sounded like a cult to be honest or some guy with a fetish to be around hookers. So I asked about the screening. I know that you can't get a trafficking victim up to a hotel room without passing screening by their pimps. Then when the victim doesn't return – they're going to come looking. So I started asking how come they were not running into the same problems we do when we extract a sex trafficking victim – including the threats from local police, attorney's and private investigators.

When I asked how he was handling these threats – he just starts stuttering. I also didn't understand why the hotel sting. Why not just call them up or do street outreach? I mean we only use a “john sting” when we've found there is no way to get them away from the pimp other than when they're on an appointment. Otherwise, there's no point to this. This makes no sense to me at all – so I said that I wasn't going to give referrals to them unless I saw everything with my own eyes. I wanted to meet these so called “success stories”, I wanted to see this ranch, I wanted to see what type of program they were using, meet their people, etc. I also wanted to meet Kevin Brown. But when I asked to have these meetings and tours set up – he balked completely.

He then said “well don't you need help? If you send your callers to us we can help them.” To which I pointed out our system was working just fine and he could listen to some testimonials we have up at www.blogtalkradio.com/stopsextrafficktalk. What I found strange was a group new to this work not asking questions of us who have been since 1987 and don't even know who we are. I told him frankly I questioned how when he put this program together when he didn't go online and at least talk to us about what our program does before starting his own. That's been a real red flag to me in the past that something is fishy. Samoly Mam is a good example. She's another one who didn't even bother to speak to me about our program, nor acknowledge we even existed – and she was a complete sham.
It just made no sense to me and that's why I said I wasn't going to give him any referrals until I met people and saw things with my own eyes. I didn't hear from him again and since he called me from a blocked number I couldn't get in touch with him again either.

Then in March of 2015, I received a phone call from Domina Elle's phone. She was gathering information on groups like ours to find out what services we offer. This was before the show “8 Minutes” had even aired. I told her what I tell people scouting for information – if she knows of someone who needs help they need to call us themselves to get more information.

On April 13, 2015, I got a call from a woman who called herself “Claudia Ortiz” at first. I knew it was a fake name because she said she was from Brazil, and also her call frankly sounded scripted. She insisted she was terrified if her story leaked out to the press she'd be deported – but I later learned she' talked to over 10 reporters before even calling me. People afraid of press don't call that many reporters. After telling me her story about the series being faked, and her being paid $200 to act like she was a prostitute, and her husband acting as her pimp on the show – she then said she really wanted help to quit sex work. All while not asking me anything about how to quit being she'd called SWA. Yes I have a tape recording of that call she gave me permission to publish.

But she said the producers wouldn't help her. This made no sense to me because if the show was being staged – then why would she think they'd help her? If they had a program – they wouldn't be hiring actors. But she also told me she was going to be evicted in two days, and she had no car, no money, and supposedly an open prostitution case and an open immigration case. She also said she was terrified they were going to air this show without her face blurred and this would affect her children's safety. She asked me for help – and I told her truthfully I had her “covered”.

First of all, I've been a paralegal for 29 years now. All of our members practically come in with evictions, or divorces, or restraining orders and no one can afford an attorney. So I told her I'd fill her out a “stay” for her eviction and get that filed in the morning. (Which by the way is why I think the Cupcake Girls are attacking and undermining our program – their lobbyist is also paid by defense lawyers who are not happy that as a paralegal I'm helping out women who can't afford to hire an attorney. However, what these attorney's don't understand is these women can't afford even the filing fees when I help them – let alone to pay for legal counsel. I spent 15 years being mentored by the best attorney's in Los Angeles and do know what I'm doing as far as helping members fill out forms.)

I also have a member of SWA in Houston who owns a call center. He could hire her and her husband on the spot. Since it's a call job – they can work from home and don't need a car. As for her being in the USA – what she told me sounded like she would be a good “expert witness” in the current lawsuit that Backpage has going all over the country. I figured we'd talk to them and as long as she's being used as an expert witness – then she can maintain her visa to stay in this country and this is not a job where she's replacing an American. All requirements for her to stay in this country on a work visa.

I further felt we could file a class action against Relativity on behalf of all of the women on the show asking for a million dollars because their constitutional rights were violated based on what she's telling me. Asking someone to pretend to be a “criminal” in reality was already something that the cast of “Gigolo's” went through. When being asked to be filmed committing a criminal act of prostitution while that film is labeled as “reality” is a form of entrapment and thus also violates their 5th amendment rights.

Something neither cast of “Gigolo's” nor “8 Minutes” were advised of before filming. They resolved that on Gigolo's by having the cast labeled as actors – NOT REALITY.

So not only did I feel we could sue them for violating these people's rights not to incriminate themselves – but I also felt the show was a defamation of both real victims and real sex workers separately who we could also name as plaintiffs. Why? If you watched the show they portrayed what I believe to be sex workers. Those who advertise on Backpage for sexual services for money – and if they wanted to go into some program for help they could. The show called these women “victims” over 10 times within five minutes. They said they were “mentally ill” and “junkies” and made it appear they all could not care for their own children. So they “defamed” sex workers.

As for victims of trafficking – they defamed them by making it appear that they CAN just make a choice in “8 Minutes” to simply stop what they're doing by choice. The whole definition of a victim is that THEY CAN'T LEAVE AND THERE IS NO CHOICE. Which was not what was portrayed on this show that was again STAGED. By staging this show the producers DELIBERATELY DEFAMED BOTH sex workers AND sex trafficking victims in one shot.

As for blurring Kamylla's face – we could get an injunction against that show airing based on it endangering her safety and her children's. But I didn't have a lot of time since it was airing in two days. This isn't the first time I've dealt with this. Mind you I've been through this when Annie Lobert was doing her so called “reality show” on Bravo that I got yanked after one episode because it was also a complete sham. Why? Because people had been donating over a million dollars to Pastor Benny Perez who basically filed bankruptcy and there was no house – and I got left being the one to provide the services to the prostitutes they'd promised help to. Maybe there is a house now in Vegas – but there wasn't one back in 2010 when Annie was claiming that such a house had opened already falsely.

I also helped to get “Gigolo's” pulled off the air until they could resolve their legal issues. They were also claiming to portray “real” male escorts and the reality of that world – well if that's the case then they were filming a crime. Metro then got involved because it was appearing they were filming a crime in process. The show then had to restructure itself before it could continue airing by admitting everyone was an actor on the show – even the clients – and that everything was staged.

Why was that important to me? Because Heidi Fleiss and Dennis Hof were using that show to raise millions out of investors who were led to believe that there's enough women buying men to sustain a male brothel for women when the reality is – well it's been shown – there aren't enough women who would patronize a male to female brothel. I also was the one who had to tell a lot of male hookers who relocated to Nevada thinking they'd be able to be like the men on the show - it was hype and then I had to help them get on their feet when they realized they weren't going to be another “Gigolo” . Once again, they got the money and I got the tab.

Which was exactly what was happening with “8 Minutes”. When it started airing I'm the one answering the phone now every night until 4:00 in the morning – while they're getting the donations, the grant money, the fame, etc. I'm the one talking people out of staging hotel stings once the show aired. I'm the one people are calling for help when they are trying to find Kevin Brown and not finding him. So now I had proof that show was in fact “staged” - I was going to go public with that information. I had a social obligation to do so because people were donating money thinking that what Kevin Brown was doing was “real”.

I was also very concerned about public safety what with people thinking this “sting” idea was actually a good idea. Someone was going to get hurt if it continued.

When I started to come forward with the fact the show had been staged – I'm suddenly having people coming out of nowhere insisting this “Claudia” now “Kamylla” might be deported if we release this information. Which was ridiculous. First of all, if she was going to be deported she would have been already when they arrested her. Second, if they tried to deport her while we were suing them then it would be clearly retaliation. I highly doubted they'd even attempt this sort of thing for fear of the bad press. Third, if they did try to deport her we could make a motion that we needed her in the states to testify in the Backpage lawsuit I'm sure we could have gotten her on as an expert witness about how the things being said about them are in fact “staged” because that's what she saw them doing during the taping of the show – they “staged” it to appear Backpage was where these women were coming from.

It was during this time I learned many of the people who were telling me “not” to do this were fake profiles – or “catfish” if you will. Which is why I warn you this is a deep rabbit hole with all the fake people, fake programs, fake churches, etc. involved in this whole situation. So I released a statement that the show was faked and did so knowing that “Claudia” was not her real name. Because this statement did not contain this woman's “real name” so no one's identity was violated plus it was very clear she wanted this press or she wouldn't have talked to all those reporters was my thinking. Now I understand yes she wanted the press – but wanted the press to NOT be about the show being staged.

I then served upon Relativity Media a notice that I was intending to file a lawsuit against them for defamation, and to get an injunction against them based on the threat to Claudia's safety if they showed her episode without blurring her face. I placed a copy of this notice on the A&E page about the show, and also all over social media. I thought it important to let people know there was no “program” in reality because when I went on the A&E page – I found Mercedes Reese, Greg Reese's wife, claiming that she was running a program in Orange County and that people could reach out to her for help.

Only based on my conversation with her – there was no program she was offering and certainly not one that I saw was effective at helping either sex trafficking victims or sex workers wanting to leave the industry to find help. Now they could be using a group to pump prostitutes for information like Slate wrote about how prevalent “informants” are in Orange County and from what the prostitutes were telling me – but not a real “program” that was helping them to leave sex work. What I was seeing was a combination of intelligence gathering, evangelism and fraudulent fund raising if anything (straight out of the Samoly Mam handbook) – but no actual program she was offering anyone.

If you wonder what I mean by that – let me ask you this simple question – if you were to want to help an alcoholic to get sober, or to get sober yourself, while you might use a church to help, and even go into a treatment program – wouldn't you even think of attempting this without at least consulting AA?
These people knew about us. Kevin Brown knew about us a year before. Domina Elle knew about us in March. This woman, Claudia, knew about me to call on April 13th for some reason. Yet despite knowing that we existed, and knowing that we've been effective with our members – they're not even asking us anything about our program, how it works – no questions were coming from them to us. So it's not about helping sex workers or trafficking victims then is it?

I'm sure that if Mercedes and Greg Reese had decided to start Safe Passage to help prostitutes it crossed their mind to go online and see if any existing programs were already operating which of course we can be found in two clicks off Google. I've answered our mail, email and hotline since 1987 and no one had contacted me for any information before setting up these so called “programs” so yes I am going to say they weren't set up with the recovery of these men and women in mind. Not just my program either were they ignoring – but also Children of the Night, Covenant House, CASTLA, Dream Center, Mary Magdalene Project, and so on. Our hotline lists all kinds of programs that they hadn't accessed because no one had called me to find (1) what programs already existed, and (2) how did we work?

So why are they doing this then if not having any intent to actually outreach someone into a program that works to help them exit and recover from sex work then? Good question. The next morning after this call from Claudia/Kamylla – my phone rings off the hook from an attorney in New Jersey and another in Houston both claiming she's their client. Clearly she has legal representation. I know that once you are an official “client” of an attorney – they can't just stop representing you if you run out of money. In fact, a judge can refuse to allow them to stop representing you over simply a lack of money.

So her call was a sham like I suspected. Which is why I had no problem going forward with the statement the whole show was a sham. Even Polaris had stepped up saying they had NOT given them permission to use their hotline even in connection with the show. So if they're not working with me, and not working with Polaris – then what is going on? But I'd also seen fund raisers going on in connection with “8 Minutes” so I had a moral obligation to those donors to let them know something.

But I was worried that others who had been promised their faces would be blurred were going to have shows airing that didn't – and their children might then be in danger. People only know what they hear – not the retractions. Fearing for this, and after being told by five reporters they would not print anything about this for fear they'd be fired – I decided to announce the injunction I could file in the Nevada court at the Las Vegas city council meeting being held the next day. I also knew some news reporters I knew would me on air to announce the filing of an injunction against the show.

However, I'm out of town getting my daughter medical care and can't afford a hotel. I'd been hearing about this group the “Cupcake Girls” so I wrote them about how women could be in danger of their faces being shown on air as “prostitutes” . I asked if they knew someone who could let me take a nap before driving back home. Their response was to tell me to go fly a kite, and then block me. I'd been trying for months prior to get information from them as to what they do for our hotline to no avail – and then this.

It honestly made no sense as to why they're out there doing all this PR about how much not only do they want to help the sex workers with their program, Cupcake Girls, but also made no sense from a Christian perspective why they're refusing to meet with me. Even more so in light of the fact I'm an ordained Christian minister and survivor as to why they're refusing to meet with me.

Which is when I suspected they were in fact a “front” for something else so I started nosing around. Sure enough, the Cupcake Girls have a paid lobbyist named Kerrie Kramer working for them. Now Kerrie also represents – wait drum roll now please – Las Vegas Defense Lawyers number one. Number two is the Nevada Bus & Limo Association, and number three Live Nation Entertainment. Now Live Nation Entertainment, based out of Los Angeles, also happens to produce concerts, and they're also a Wall Street traded company. Second drum roll please - - - because Live Nation Entertainment also happens to be producing Snoop Dogg's tour currently. This makes more sense when you review the website, and campaign, I have up at www.boycottsnoop.com

Now it's making much more sense why these people are bringing cupcakes to strippers, offering them make-overs, and facials, and saying it's their “Christian outreach”. Baloney. I knew this was a sham the minute I heard that these women can't find work other than stripping when they appeared at the legislature. I've been placing strippers, prostitutes, and porn stars in great paying jobs outside the sex industry since 1996 in Nevada. I also had the Cupcake Girls refuse this list.

They clearly aren't doing this for the strippers as they claim. Not when you realize that Joy Hoover, their founder, also owns a salon in Las Vegas. THIS is why she goes into the strip clubs offering free make-overs. Which is fine frankly if that's how you want to grab some customers for your salon. But DON'T pretend this is a ministry to “HELP” them, all while bashing a group that's been in Las Vegas since 1996 ACTUALLY HELPING THEM.

The reason they refused the list, and also why they're against what we're doing is further understood when you realize their PAID lobbyist also represents defense lawyers of Las Vegas and Live Nation Entertainment. Defense lawyers who don't want to see a prostitute not needing a lawyer to expunge her records when all they've had to do in the past is get our assistance. This is a direct attack upon the fact we've been able to get prostitutes out of jail time through alternative sentencing in our program, as well as we've been able to get the work cards, jobs, and record expungement WITHOUT having to put up $5000 retainers to defense lawyers.

You also can not convince me their attacks upon our program are not connected with the fact that Live Nation Entertainment is producing two concerts coming up with Snoop Dogg – who I started a boycott movement against in 2013 when “Turbo” was first released by Disney. I also set up a website about the boycott at www.boycottsnoop.com Why? Because sex trafficking victims are not able to get help, nor able to prosecute their traffickers when they're under Snoop's umbrella of protection. Since he started the Youth Football League – pimps are now able to get onto high schools they previously were unable to get access to because they didn't attend these schools. The cheerleaders are not being educated about sex trafficking – nor do they have anywhere to go if they are targeted. The boys are being shown a confessed pimp as a role model – yet Snoop does nothing to educate them about the dangers of sex trafficking or even of becoming pimps like Jeremy Greene who started out at 16 years of age.

WHAT HAPPENED
The minute I announced the show was staged – it was like a very well organized battle plan went into action. The page was taken down from the A&E site and Buzzfeed noted it was down four hours after I'd placed a copy of the legal notice on that page. Mind you when shows are canceled – it is not normal to take down their page and the videos by the way. Go online and you can still watch canceled shows. It's so unusual that Buzzfeed posted an article about it.

So I sent the reporter, Ariane Grange, a copy of the notice I'd put on the page and told her this notice was why I felt the page was taken down. Then instead of writing anything about this notice, my email to her, etc. - she acts like she's not aware of this at all – and instead starts quotes Maxine Doogan where she proclaims she's the reason why the show was canceled. She had done no “due diligence” to verify anything about this woman's story before asking people to donate. Her omission about the information I'd given her outright suggests fraud and manipulation – because a lie by omission is still a lie.

But Maxine, who had been protesting them for weeks to no avail – releases a photo claiming victory on her part for getting the show canceled. Okay who cares I think. She wants credit – fine. But I find that the very reporters who are writing that she's responsible for this victory – are not writing anything about the legal notice I'd posted, nor about the fact we had a similar problem with the Annie show, or the Gigolo show, about the fact the producers asked people to portray a crime in action they filmed and called it “real” which is a form of entrapment, nor even mentioning anything about even talking to me.

Mary O'Hara for example had talked to me, and even acknowledged that she hadn't seen a contract out of Kamylla and that her story sounded “fake” - yet now I'm seeing a fund raiser for her that Mary's asking people to go donate to? Now that's really fishy. Why would she admit to me her story sounded “fake” and she's not even sure the woman was even on the show – and then ask people to go donate to her? Why is she printing articles that act like she's never even spoke to me or heard about me? Why is the issue of entrapment not discussed despite the fact it was discussed when “Gigolo's” went through the same exact issue with their filming from the same production company?

As I see this fund raiser going up that Domina Elle set up at www.sexworkersolidarity.com – I note the domain was registered a year ago. Strangely the very week filming started. Okay she says she “had it laying around”. But then she claims that I had done something to trash it and they had to move it to another site. I had not. Wondering why she's lying – I go onto this fund raiser to see that she's also asking people to support a bill forcing homeless shelters to take in sex trafficking victims. There's a reason first of all that they don't. A reason why I had been saying since 1987 that our system needed to change the way it was helping sex trafficking victims because shelters across the country weren't secure enough to handle when these pimps show up in the middle of the night bearing guns.

But what I'm trying to figure out is why is this woman trying to champion a law like this? Plus doing it in combination with a fund raiser for this Kamylla as she's now being called? I ask if this woman is a lobbyist – and no she's not. So they take down the information when they move this fund raiser yet again – again falsely telling everyone that it's because of me that they're moving it. I'm also concerned because there are multiple lawsuits ongoing with respect to not only Backpage right now in different states – but also with respect to Maxine's lawsuit. Isn't this mass propaganda these women are engaging in without being lobbyists' also a form of “jury tampering”?

I served Domina Elle with a notice that I would file a defamation lawsuit if she did not take down these lies about me that she was posting. Her response was to yes take them down. However, the same exact postings, wording and even cartoon that she'd made of me then just pops up under a completely other, and fake, name. When I served that person with the notice – it's taken down – but then pops up under another name of a real person. I do it a fourth time and the same thing happens. I've checked the law and this makes what she's doing now “conspiracy” because more than one person now is engaging not only in this defamation, but now we're reached the point of “tortious economic interference”.

This tells me she knows what she's doing is illegal – but she's going to just keep doing it like a wolf pack until I'm too exhausted to fight. Why lie about me? I'm not understanding any of this. Then something clicks that scares me. My mother had been charged with pimping me based on a photo of me handing her a $20 bill for a bucket of KFC chicken. The hotel clerk and the cab driver were also arrested with me under pimping charges. I've seen cab drivers, nail ladies, and even hotel clerks arrested before for pimping. They charged Heidi Fleiss' parents with it at first, and even tried to go after Jeane Palfrey's mother. The law is very clear that if you take so much as $1.00 from a “prostitute” - then you're guilty of pimping. You give a phone number to a prostitute – and that's “pandering”. 

The law is very clear here and this is why I don't even pass the basket at SWA meetings.
Yet here they are asking KNOWN PROSTITUTES to donate to Kamylla who has no legitimate means of support to show where her money is coming from other than sex work or this fund raiser that's now money donated from prostitutes. I become greatly concerned that if she accepts this money – she could be charged with pimping as well as possibly money laundering. Further, that if without a job she gives even $1.00 of this to her husband then HE could be charged with pimping. That upon receipt of this money, if they both are charged with pimping, and even possibly money laundering, then they won't get bail because they're not American, and their children could placed in with foster care.

So I start asking Maxine and Domina Elle “what precautions are you taking about this?” to which the roar increases where they now want to make sure no one is talking to me. This is when they start trying to target our friends and followers on social media – only I went through this dance in 2013. For that reason I already have told our family, friends, supporters, members NOT to have me added anywhere, not to mention my name, not to have me listed anywhere so that someone can locate them using my name and then target them. But some had recently come in through SWOP and had mentioned my name in defense of me – and sure enough the threats started coming to them “don't talk to Jody or you'll be shunned by everyone”. Which is why I say this has gone beyond “defamation” and even “conspiracy” but now we're reaching the point of “tortious economic interference” in that they are now not only trying to do what I do, but they're now telling other people they can't even speak to me.

It's now reached the point of “economic interference” when they're now going to groups that we belong to that we do outreach in for those who need our help – and they've forced the moderators to take our name off the list. The moderators have told me privately they don't “want to – but were forced to”. Again, since they're working in a pack – this also makes it a conspiracy. Since it's also about conning people out of money that's now reached well over $10,000 - we're looking at a very serious issue here.

Only what did I do? I offered Kamylla help her with her legal issues, get her a job, help her sue the producers, help her stay in the country and suddenly I'm the “bad guy”? It's making no sense at all. To drive me off the internet – these people started attacking our hotline. Text bombing my phone at all hours to try and get me to shut off the phone. Setting up websites at www.sexworkersanonymous.org telling people I'm a “predator” and to not call or trust us that they tell me won't come down until OUR website comes down. I mean what is it about us that is making these people so nervous? When we refused to cave – they started up with the phony calls to our hotline. When they couldn't trip me up into saying anything messed up – they get even angrier and more lies start spreading about us online.

I start getting calls from other members of groups like SWOP, Red Umbrella and Desiree Alliance we've helped over the years when they got arrested, and when they exited the sex industry. But now even out of the industry they still believe the laws need to be changed so they belong to both groups. They start telling me that these people are now trying to drive them out of these groups simply based upon being my friend, or a member of SWA. Again this makes absolutely no sense – but it is familiar.

I went through an almost identical scenario when Samoly Mam and Ben Hilliar were out in the anti-trafficking field trying to convince people they were real. Their people didn't want anyone around to denounce them anyone would listen to. Which is why I say I was “prepared” this time by not having anyone listing us on their social media – we'd already gone through this same exact type of smear campaign and witch hunt in 2013 when some people were trying to pass off phony sex trafficking survivors and rescue groups back then. Back then I'd been advised this was conspiracy, fraud, rackeeteering, money laundering, defamation and economic interference, as well as “cyber stalking” - but I didn't document what was happening when it was being done by Samoly Mam and her people. However, this time I was prepared and have. The names have changed – but the game is still the same.

Having those red flags go up – I start smelling someone's scamming money. Samoly Mam had gathered millions of dollars during her run before she got exposed. By running me out of the anti-trafficking groups I wasn't able to warn people about her before millions of dollars was scammed. So I start looking – and sure enough I see that Orange County (where Kevin Brown and Greg Reese is) has received $1,200,000 in grant money to “fight sex trafficking”.

A little more digging and I see that Orange County has also received $400,000 to provide housing for sex trafficking victims. Funny thing is I'd written the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force many times since they formed offering our services to their victims – only to never get so much as a return phone call from them. But I don't see Kevin Brown or Safe Passage listed on their directory.

Doing some homework on D'Lita Miller, who is claiming to be a “consultant” to the show, I find her name connected with very large sums of money, about $3,500,000 for victims, and another $1,500,000 for “outreach” in Long Beach. Only when I'm doing homework on her programs – I'm again finding nothing but smoke and mirrors. When I spoke to her and she told me there was “no resources” for these victims she says she's working with – after being involved with all this money being granted isn't there some obligation for her to at least find out from me what resources are available?

What I did found confused me even more. I found a big article in the Los Angeles Times, and the OC Register about the “outreach” that Kevin Brown and Greg Reese had been doing before the show “8 Minutes” had started recording. One article talked about how they were out “knocking on doors” and how they're trying to do “outreach to a 17 year old” only what concerns me now is why? Why are they out there trying to talk to a 17 year old minor female about what we now know is a non-existent program? If they were referring this girl to Children of the Night, or Covenant House – then I'd understand what they're doing. But if there's no program, and the show was staged, then why are they out there trying to track down a 17 year old prostitute if not to simply show off for the reporters? But then we go back to the issue that a lot of money was given to help these women. Maybe the 17 year old prostitute doesn't exist. But the women are telling stories identical to Kamylla's in that they aren't receiving anything. This is all very confusing and why I'm writing all of you to help sort this all out.

As for “Cupcake Girls' – this is a group that is out fund raising for this woman that any attempts I've made to document her story is real is coming up short. I've asked around and no one else has any documentation. Now I donated money to her fund raiser myself which means I have some right to have my questions answered as to the validity of her story. Otherwise, now I'm a victim of a scam. But when I asked the Cupcake Girls for some kind of proof they'd verified this woman's story after having donated to the fund raiser – I then got ignored. As a 501c3 I find this completely out of line.

Especially with how they're using their nonprofit status in a very unethical manner. After learning of this woman through me – they cut me off from her, threaten her she won't get her $5000 and she'll be deported supposedly if she speaks to me again - and then went after her to create a fund raiser that raised their public profile. They are not supposed to be a political organization, and have done extensive public relations in the past stating they are not a political organization. Yet they capitalized on this press to go to the Nevada legislature to have a Bill created asking to expunge records for prostitutes on the claim that these women “can't find work” because of those records.
I've been placing men and women through now only Sex Workers Anonymous, but also Narcotics Anonymous, in Nevada since 1996 and I have NOT found a criminal record for trespassing, solicitation, or even prostitution to hinder their ability to find work in any way other than cashier jobs, or jobs handling money. Even then, I've been able to help them apply for a work permit, or speak to their employer, and we've found it not to be a problem. I have a list of companies who will hire someone with not only a prostitution charge, but also drug charges, and even felonies. I offered this list to the Cupcake Girls and it was refused.

This to me tells me they are doing a disservice to these women. Especially when I'm getting phone calls like I did on August 11, 2015, from a woman who says when she asked them for help to exit the sex industry they referred her to the local homeless shelter only and blew her off. The woman turned out to just be very stressed out from her PTSD from being in prostitution. When I went with her to DMV – we had no problem obtaining her ID card which then allowed her to start seeking work so she wasn't forced to prostitute to support herself.

Which is what concerns me deeply about this. This woman had gone to Hookers for Jesus, and to Cupcake Girls, who are raising large sums of money on the spirit of the promise to their donors that they are helping women to leave prostitution. This woman who I'll call Sally went to both of these programs first asking for help. She couldn't get legit work because she couldn't get a valid ID card from DMV because she wasn't born here in the USA, and she was adopted. With an ID card, she also couldn't apply for social services. She reports they wouldn't even give her food at the food bank without an ID card. Without being able to find work, nor social services – she was forced to prostitute to care for herself. After coming to them with this problem – she says they both refused to help her.

Well I take that back. Hookers for Jesus offered to put her in a six month residential program, and the Cupcake Girls she says offered her a make-over inside of a strip club. Neither of these things were what she needed. However, upon rejecting her request for help to get her ID so she could find work – she was again forced to prostitute. In my mind, this makes them an accomplice to crime – and it also violates the spirit of the money that was donated and/or granted to these nonprofits when they are not EITHER doing what women like her need OR referring them to our program where WE CAN.

Now luckily some people like Sally go online, and keep looking. Upon continuing to look for help – they find us and then are helped. However, I've also known many a story where a woman has felt completely lost, hopeless, and outcast when refused help at groups like these – and they've gone home to kill themselves. I've then had long talks with their mothers who had to bury their babies about how they killed themselves because of knocking on door after door after door and getting no help.

It's one thing not to offer them the help. It's another to actively deny we exist, refuse to refer them to us, as well as that we're having to do the work while they're the ones getting all the grant money and press. Frankly, I don't have the time to do the press they do BECAUSE I'M BUSY HELPING THE SALLY'S OUT THERE. This woman called me at 4:00 a.m. After spending hours talking to her on the phone, I wasn't able to wake up until 3:00 in the afternoon the next day. I then got up and got on the phone with DMV to find out what paperwork we needed to get her ID. Then the next day we spent literally eight hours at DMV obtaining her ID card. I had to pick her up in my car, take her to DMV, and then take her home again all on my own dime. Work I would like to add I WOULDN'T BE HAVING TO DO IF EITHER OF THESE GROUPS HAD DONE IT FOR HER.

Which again is fine – but then when I try and go online to raise any type of support for the work we're doing to cover my expenses in having to help women like her – I'm finding myself either blocked out of access to do this, or I'm having people telling me they're being threatened about being fired if they speak to us, their grant money messed with if they speak to us, social shunning if they speak to us, AND reporters telling me they'll also be drummed out of the industry if they give US the SAME PRESS THEY'RE GIVING THEM.

After looking at who the paid lobbyist, Kerrie Kramer, represents then these attacks make much more sense now. Including how it all connects right back to the Los Angeles based Relativity Media as well.

So something has to give here. Which is why I'm in the process of filing civil lawsuits against these people. In the meantime, I'm writing your offices to see what you can do to investigate for possible criminal charges for one. For another, I'd like the IRS to review whether or not these groups are abusing their 501c3 privileges granted by your offices.

I also think the grant sources need to know about what's being done with their money in reality. If you will note this fact – each one of these groups that have been trying to chase us out of business (if you call what we do “business”) is connected by either a large grant, or a large financial interest. Therefore this is “economic interference” and “conspiracy”. As well I'd like your offices to also investigate into whether or not these activities constitute fraud or not. I also don't think defense lawyers and corporations, as well as Snoop's guard dogs, should be disguising their agenda under the Cupcake Girls skirts or Domina Elle's leathers either.

I've attached some documentation with this letter to help you review these issues. If I'm missing something you need, I have all kinds of screen shots that I've taken to document their activities, including the receipts to show that I've donated to these fund raisers, as well as the emails between the parties and myself too numerous to include in this already long letter.

Thank you very much for your time and attention in this matter.
