SECOND LETTER TO WOODHULL FREEDOM FOUNDATION ABOUT JESSE MALEY

(after I read  https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-features/sex-worker-advocates-lawsuit-internet-censorship-sesta-fosta-666783/ I realized they were talking about Jesse Maley who used to operate "out of the life" in Florida" - so I wrote them the following follow-up letter)

Just so you know, I was the first person ever certified as an expert witness in sex trafficking in 1995.  I can name you many trials where I've served not only as an expert witness in trafficking, but those cases all wound up in a conviction.  I'll be happy to show you my written credentials to that fact by the way.  Anyone can claim to be an "expert witness" but how many…

AND THERE IT IS - THE MOTIVATION BEHIND THE PLUGGING

SWOP'S IDEA OF A "MEETING" FOR SEX WORKERS

Image
For those of you "old timers" in this community, you will remember that I've had a long term relationship in the past with both Sex Workers Outreach Project, otherwise known as SWOP, as well as Tits & Sass the blog.

Why?  Because SWA wasn't designed to get people out of the sex industry.   We were designed to help people get out who needed help to do so and couldn't get it from traditional sources like calling the police for help.  We were also designed to provide "alternative sentencing" for victims of sex trafficking who were being convicted as criminals - so they could come to our meetings instead of being forced into a jail term because of mandatory incarceration laws.  Remember, American women didn't have federal recognition they could even BE a "victim" until the Trafficking Act of 2000.  Up until then you were viewed only, and totally, as a "criminal" by our legal system.

Our hotline and program was instead designed for…

HOW THIS WAR IS FOUGHT

When looking into past civil rights movements - one where you can really see how our American system works is how Martin Luther King was opposed.  How much effort went into one man is mind boggling.  What's even more mind boggling is how did he ever accomplish anything with all this opposition?

Read this article so you understand their tactics - http://thefreethoughtproject.com/fbi-memphis-polices-admitted-involvement-assassination-mlk/

First, they had a photographer following him around that MLK thought was a "trusted friend" who in reality was an informant working against him.

Second, they "attacked his marriage".  If anyone remembers, Julian Assange had a woman come on to him sexually and then cry "rape".  How convenient for the people trying to shut him up.  http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-11949341  I'm sorry but statistically very intelligent people aren't rapists.  Rape is about control and intelligent people know 1000 other ways t…

THIS IS WHO WE'RE PROTECTING SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIMS FROM

LOOK WHAT I FOUND

Here is an article in the Huffington Post confirming the lawsuit filed by Maxine Doogan was DISMISSED. 

JUST AS I PREDICTED.

The complaint wasn't written with one leg to stand on.  Not if the intent was to decriminalize prostitution as she's claiming the lawsuit was intended when she was out fund raising and garnering support from sex workers who don't have 30 years of experience with the legal system as I do (I've been working as a paralegal for 30 years since I left sex work).

Which is why when I first read the lawsuit, and knew it would be dismissed, I reached out to Maxine offering her support to modify the complaint to something I thought would have a better shot at winning the stated race of trying to get prostitution decriminalized.

Only to find myself rebuffed, even threatened to "back off". 

So I contacted her attorney's directly thinking maybe Maxine just didn…

LETTER TO BILLY JACK'S SURVIVORS

Of course my luck is that the day the "light goes on" with me with respect to some of the concepts Tom was trying to raise awareness about - I learn he passed away two years ago.  

So I'm writing to the survivors.  My name is Jody Williams.  Back in the 1980's, I was a young MENSA  member who graduated high school at 15 years of age because of a high IQ.  I enrolled in community college to prepare my way for the university, but I needed to get a job after my father robbed my college fund.  
I got a job at a nightclub owned by the family who are part of the generational line connected to Richard Pryor of drug dealers, pimps and prostitutes . He's spoken openly about his grandmother running the brothel his mother worked in.  They needed a way to launder money and this was the club I walked into looking for a job in 1979.  
I was "turned out" by this family of pimps into the sex industry.  However, after watching this "family" tore apart by the coca…

PROP 57 OP-ED ESSAY

Here's the deal - we're being excluded as you know from the very system we created. 

WE'RE the program who came to the courts FIRST in 1987 when NO ONE wanted to lift a finger to help us.  We're the ones who said first and without a fund raiser or a federal grant - "until you are going to decriminalize prostitution then the least you can do is court order them into our program in place of jail being that these are not criminals - but instead women feeding their children, junkies looking for a way to feed their habit who can't get into treatment because they're prostitutes, and also because victim services won't help them when raped, kidnapped, stalked and beaten because the system considers them as "criminals", women who can't get jobs because of porn of them appearing online alone with having a criminal record which means they can't deny the photos are in facts theirs, criminal records preventing them from obtaining work licenses such…
