Mission Not Impossible:
The Youth Voice Initiative is a social welfare organization which authors and lobbies the innovative and groundbreaking laws we need to protect children from the dangers that arise from abuse and take away the tools for child predators who conspire to commit crimes against children, as well as the growing problem of domestic violence against men and fathers, as well as other abuses against our children. We also gather support for these laws and build awareness to the problems that inspire them.
The purpose and mission of Youth Voice Initiative is to give a voice to the countless number of children who daily become victims of child predators. These predators use every tool and deception possible to prey on their innocence. The problem has become increasingly larger and the existing laws are manipulated in a way that allows these predators to repeatedly victimize children. We believe that all children have a basic right to have their safety and innocence protected so that they may grow into confident, mature and productive adults. The Youth Voice Initiative is here to bring legislation to ensure that child safety comes first, as a society who doesn't cherish children have higher crime rates. The time is now to protect our children. We are a new, brave and bold organization where backing down from dangerous criminals is not a choice. It will not be easy or quickly accomplished since these pedophiles have created an multi-billion dollar industry out of the exploitation and abuse of children. It is therefore with great determination and dedication that we will undertake the task of dismantling their operations and provide justice for the victims.
Our goals are to increase awareness and education for abuse prevention as well as to petition and sponsor legislation to make it more difficult for predators to continually offend and get off with minimal punishment. We have determined that legislation should be in place to insure that these predators receive appropriate punishments rather than escaping through loopholes. Additionally, we further hope to encourage victims to seek counseling and seek organizations to form alliances with to provide survivor support, creative outlets and other services.

Ability to manage funds & stay within budget.
Understands tax forms and how to fill them out for IRS purposes.
Advocacy strengths were attained from 6+ years of parenting/sexual abuse issues/victimization/offender experience.
Did work face to face with offenders and victims.
Step parent of children who'd experienced former inter-family abuse on sexual and physical levels, who are now stable and contributing members of society.
I conducted much research and compiled a list of all of the things I would need to start YVI and be fully legal and operational. It seemed a little pricey to get things started but when compared to the well being of our children or other victims, it was a “drop in a bucket”, of value. YVI’s mission is to lobby any laws that will protect anybody (though especially focused toward children) from abuse, sexual or otherwise, and to stiffen the penalties towards those offenders.
