NAMES YOU SHOULD KNOW

Dark Portrait

Are you familiar with these names? 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

STEP1
Inform

We learn as much as we can about each case.  We track down family members, friends, and lawyers so that we can be responsible in the information that we share.

STEP2
Sign

We find existing petitions and encourage you to sign them.  If one does not exist, we create it.

STEP3
Write

We write the victims to encourage them and let them they are not forgotten. 

We write to kindly remind them that they stand for all people, even those who have been forgotten.

STEP4
Give

We raise funds to send care packages, and donate to legal funds to help those affected by double victimization the freedom they deserve.

STEP5
Shout

We are loud when we see injustice.  We cry for Freedom until those who deserve it have it.  We encourage our followers to do the same.  Let freedom ring for all.

Yvette

Meet "Yvette"

#Freeyvette

Twenty-eight year old “Yvette” currently sits behind bars in the state of Texas. The name “Yvette” is a pseudonym used to protect the identity of this young woman who is a victim of double victimization. Yvette grew up surrounded by chaos. As a child, she was a victim of sexual abuse and was never given the stability that a young woman needs in order to grow and thrive in society. At the age of 15, she ran away from her San Antonio home to escape sexual abuse.

 

In the years following her escape, Yvette began working as a dancer to support herself. During this time she fell victim to a drug and alcohol addiction. By the time Yvette was 23, she had been targeted by a pimp in San Antonio, Texas, who went by the nickname “Red Nose''. This man trafficked Yvette and other victims in a prostitution ring that was run out of Texas.
