NAMES YOU SHOULD KNOW
Are you familiar with these names? Delicia Carmichael, Keiana Aldrich, Patrice Smith, Chrystul Kizer, and Alexis Martin. WE ALL SHOULD BE! This is just a short list of people who have experienced double victimization.
We use the term Double victimization when a person is first victimized by a trafficker or purchaser, and secondly victimized by the judicial system by being sentenced to jail for being a victim. Our team did extensive research and found names of many people you should know.
We believe these victims should not have spent even one day in jail, much less, YEARS. Our hope is that you will know their names, say their names, and do all that is within your power to help them.
HOW WE HELP
Delicia (Lici) Carmichael is a name that everyone should know. She is a human trafficking victim exploited by people who she believed and should have loved her. Lici was a fifteen year old girl sentenced to 20 years in prison for being present during a crime that her trafficker committed. Her trafficker was only sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Lici was abused her entire life. Offered as a slave to fulfill the sexual desires of older men, Lici’s mother sold her for sex at the tender age of 4. She wasn’t even safe with her own family. After her mother went to jail for unpaid parking tickets, Lici and her younger brother were left in the care of their grandfather, who also sexually abused her.
