Victims: Coercion (force, trick, or threat). Duress: Pressure that controls the individual.

Agents, Managers, Publicists, Casting Directors; Directors, Producers, Executives: Stakeholders…

Who is (are) the responsible party(ies): when a person becomes victim as a result of an audition (producer/Harvey Weinstein at hotels), the location set is unsafe or risky, there are contract crew that causes unease, the director is taking advantage of prestige, and these – – lead to assault (physical or sexual), abuse (physical, mental [Charisma Carpenter], financial), rape (power not just access), and/or drugs are in use as a weapon – on or off set?

The use of drugs to gain control (power) may lead to addiction [historically: Judy Garland, Debbie Reynolds], but now another abuse occurs, our legal system fails victims by deeming them “criminal”, and/or years of costly medical care? Who pays for on the job drug addiction or quality neuropsychiatric care in lieu of fast, unqualified interventionists to the celebs, revolving door rehabilitation programs, or physicians ignoring the underly causes?

  • Who takes responsibility should a person lose income, roles, jobs, or suffer mental anguish, a result of such predation?
  • Who will start reporting the Power of Privilege (Weinstein began in the 70s), onset sober companions sharing drugs, unethical intervention, or medical providers (doctors referring to unqualified yet paid by insurers, improper intimacy situations, unqualified intimacy coordinators (taking advantage), improper directing (Sharon Stone)?

The victims are often re-victimized, lose their careers, and some die, some are sold or mentally impaired for years.

Awareness Mission, Inc., is taking prevention to new limits by mitigating these risks, and empowering voices. We are working with studio executives, producers, stakeholders, publicists, and agents to help assure quality in filming, upgrading safety standards, and response planning to reduce these risks, and promote a new culture of entertainment, returning to an enjoyable, fulfilling career to entertain masses.

All reports must have a designated highly trained advocate for talent (not just an HR rep) to report and assure response, and investigation into the entire situation.

“Voices are cut short” … let us assure you this is no longer a norm.

If you are a producer, studio exec, or crew chief please join our roundtables to create new empowering preventative measures to reduce risks in the entertainment industry, and promote equality, safety, and quality productions… the show must go on.

PREDATORS IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY - American Bar Reviews

Harvey Weinstein

Weinstein’s business associates would escort the women to these meetings, only to suddenly evaporate, leaving them alone to defend themselves against Weinstein’s advances. He would ask for massages. He exposed himself and masturbated in front of them. He forced oral and vaginal sex on some. He refused to take no for an answer. A large, heavy man, he could easily overpower his vic Sexual assaults have commonly proven difficult to prosecute.

To begin with, according to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, Washington, D.C., only about one in four sexual assaults gets reported. Victims fear retaliation. Some are leery of dealing with law enforcement. Victims believe that police will look askance at a victim who had drugs or alcohol in her system or who willingly went to the perpetrator’s home. Law enforcement and prosecutors are more likely to devote time and resources where the allegations involve strangers, weapons, and physical injury than to cases involving sexual assault allegations. As a result, only about nine cases out of every 1,000 sexual assaults gets referred to prosecutors.

Once this conflicting evidence was dredged up, Weinstein’s legal team requested Judge James M. Burke, the presiding judge, to dismiss the charge of criminal sexual act alleged by Evans. The prosecutors did not object. This misstep also meant that the prosecution lost the benefit of calling law enforcement witnesses to testify. The defense, meanwhile, gained an advantage by being able to raise questions of police misconduct (American Bar Association May 2020).

Jeffrey Epstein

Epstein was arrested again on July 6, 2019, on federal charges for the sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York.

“My Epstein article would focus on the government malfeasance that enabled Epstein to skate on scores of child abuse charges,” Journalist Nick Bryant.

Epstein’s now-infamous black book, filled with many bold-faced names, phone numbers, and addresses, from Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, and Ehud Barak to Alec Baldwin, Ralph Fiennes, Mick Jagger, and even Courtney Love. “It is a mosaic of Epstein’s social contacts,” (Nick Bryant July 2019).

WME Talent Agent Adam Venit, 2018 steps down after accusations by Terry Crews for "groping" are heard.  "The assault lasted only minutes, but what he was effectively telling me while he held my genitals in his hand was that he held the power. That he was in control," Crews .  Crews' lawsuit claimed that he feared retaliation from Venit, even though WME head Ari Emanuel told him that Venit "did not have that level of power."

MODERN DAY SLAVERY

(Epstein is an Example) 

Human trafficking is a criminal activity in which people are recruited, harbored, transported, bought, or kidnapped for forced labor, sex labor, or to become a child soldier. Traffickers lure individuals with false promises of employment (acting, dancing, singing, crew) and a better life (money, home, family)

"At gunpoint, Brittany was forced to drink bottles of vodka and take blue pills that made her dizzy and disoriented. Brittany tried to look for help but was locked in the hotel room without access to a phone. After three days of being beaten, drugged, and forced to have sex with men, Brittany managed to escape and asked the first car she saw to call the police (ABA Lesson Plan)  (Polaris Project - not the best organization for help but an example). 

On May 29, 2015, President Barack Obama signed the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act (JVTA) of 2015 (P.L. No 114-22).  [With this bill one would expect less revictimization in the courts blaming victims; however, this is still not the case in 2020.

A fine of $5,000 for traffickers would not start to cover medical, psychiatric, drug and therapy treatment for victims.  (Ex:  Victim attends 7 days per week therapy, 3 MD visits, lab testing routing/on demand, and 3 day per week counselling for first year; this represents one year before a victim has the ability to 

SPEAK OUT.

ABA on Justice: Rape Victim Bias

For the past several years, the issue of tens of thousands of untested rape kits languishing on shelves across the country has garnered attention from state lawmakers and advocacy groups, spurred policy changes, and secured funding or grants to test the kits and clear the backlog. But another equally disturbing problem has come to light: the destruction of rape kits before the DNA evidence is tested.

“Show me another crime where it’s okay to destroy evidence before we learn its value,” says Rebecca Campbell, a psychology professor at Michigan State University in East Lansing. “

The destruction of rape kits signals a fundamental misunderstanding by crime labs and law enforcement observes Campbell.

“It’s very concerning that biological, forensic evidence is never even being analyzed,” she adds. The process of getting an exam is difficult for victims—it’s invasive. Destroying the results before finding its value says we don’t value this evidence, this crime, these survivors.”

CALL FOR REFORM (ABA May 2019)

SPEAK UP

ABA on Justice: Forced Drugs

Drug use is either by choice (underlying disease, mental illness, peer pressure, addiction via medical expert providing without evaluating or accessibility) or by force (rape, sexual assault, trafficking, dealer testing, or as weapon of choice to control victims, and weapon of choice for murder (untraceable, and authorities rarely investigate drug deaths) - Nancy; Qwells Office, Justice Supervisor Los Angeles CA 2017 "we do not investigate deaths where drugs were on scene" even after four prior attempts on life, and drug use (although addiction can occur under force) began by force (pushed into a person); Culver City Police Detectives assure "pushing" is not illegal in CA; only purchase, and sell!!!!

DRUGS as WEAPONS

The use of a drug by force is increasingly popular in organised crime given as Nancy states "we do not investigate"; no more moving a body or planning the murder; no more how do we control the sex trafficking victim or what happens when our dealer takes too much off the top.

INTERVENTION: The parents that began Awareness Mission find that talent; like anyone becoming addicted to drugs such as heroin (hard to stop due to sickness) require expertise in care. A LA psychiatrist without certification in addictions refers (victim) to an unqualified interventionist that over 8 months provides heroin creating 11 relapses; his answer on the stand "she self-detoxed". We as humans (producers, directors, agents, managers, must assure talent is getting the BEST care for addiction whether personal choice (treat underlying) or by FORCE, and if by force; we must take a stand to assure these people; like Epstein, Weinstein pay for their crimes, and the talent gets to move forward to entertaining the world in safety.
