This is Operation Hope - https://www.operationhope.org/ However, the "doctor" they're referring to is the guy who runs Congo Justice. Only I checked with the Medical Board of Nevada and he's not licensed in Nevada anyway. When I challenged him on this - he said I "misunderstood" him and that he "worked with a doctor".
He told me he was a "doctor" when he thought I was an active prostitute and he was trying to ask me on a date. I have the screen shots of that conversation if anyone would like to see them by the way. Okay but to me - if they have access to this kind of money that JP Morgan and such offers through grants, then they don't need to be holding fund raisers. I bet he offered to be their "fiscal manager" also. The guy is also the Director of the Nigerian Association. You do the math. He also obtained a grant to hold a meeting for the task force in October of 2015. A meeting that when I tried to attend I was told had been "postponed". It has not been held yet - meaning he got the grant and no meeting has been held.
I found an article on the Cupcake Girls by "World Next Door" where the author says they came out to interview Joy. I wrote them to see if they interviewed any success stories - and the email came back -
The other interviews I found on the Cupcake Girls - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/phil-simon/an-interview-with-joy-hoo_b_5465082.html The writer of this is in Canada. He didn't come to Vegas to write this.
http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2014/08/cupcake_girls_help_strippers_p.html This interview was done at a spa day that was being hosted for strippers. I bet people said wonderful things about them there.

I'll contrast the chapter in the book "Heroes Among Us" that John Quinones devoted to us in his 2009 book, and the research Tom Ragan of the Review Journal did on us, along with Bob Herbert's research where he not only flew out to Las Vegas to see our work for himself, but he further investigated my claims for himself in his series he published on us NY Tiimes, and the 10 year research that professor Sharon Oselin put into her book "Leaving Prostitution" where she studied our members over a 10 year period of time up against something told to a long distance reporter on the phone. No offense - but we've seen with "8 Minutes" that the media isn't always going to tell us the truth. Buyer beware when wondering who to donate cash to or who to trust with the future of your life. Anyway, here's a copy of a letter we've sent to Joy. I have no doubt she's charming the media. We're women who used to make a living off charming people. We're good at it. But then again alcoholics are great drinkers. Doesn't mean you should be doing it in recovery!
Sex Workers Anonymous (formerly Prostitutes Anonymous)
Then I tore the contracts up while saying “if I wanted money I could go back to the sex industry – what I want is for the American public to believe us about hat's happening out there”. After that introduction, I then brought on three women we've rescued actually from Nevada's legal brothels to show that sex trafficking existed everywhere and in fact tended to be actually heavier where it was legal such as Amsterdam and Nevada. So when I was first doing all this work Joy there was no one calling us “hero”. I was coming home from doing a Jerry Springer to find “whore” spray painted on my car's windshield.
Well that's not good enough so I went to file a “stay of eviction” with the Goldfield judge. Who then refused to file the stay. Flat out refused. Then I had a cop, the manager, the owner of the building, and some mystery cop show up at my apartment tell me that they were “going to see me to the state line” I then went to file for a change in venue if the judge was going to be like that. The judge refused. I hired an attorney who then told me “I'm not going up again the only judge in that county”. I went to the local paper and took out an ad and that's the only thing that stopped me from being removed like something out of the wild wild west days simply because the brothel owners didn't want me to testify against anything that would raise that age up above 16 years old where it is now. I managed to make it to the legislature to testify despite these tactics – and the law was passed.
