Tonight's special guest is Lika Saliscente from Wisconsin, a lobbyist who specializes in issues related to women and children. She's also the founder of the Youth Voice Initiative, an action group, to take an active stand against those who abuse children. The YVI is a social welfare organization which authors and lobbies the innovative and groundbreaking laws needed 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. It also addresses the growing problem of domestic violence against men and fathers, as well as other abuses against our children. YVI also gathers support for these laws and build awareness to the problems that inspire them. Lika writes, "I have successfully lobbied the State of Wisconsin for Act 177, a fair pay bill for equal work as well as the "Mini Skirt Bill" which renders the attire of the rape victim inadmissible as evidence against the victim in the court of law." And she goes on, "I've also successfully lobbied for the federal law called the Violence Against Women Act of 1993. The Safer Campuses for Women was written by the Wisconsin student body." YVI is currently working on April's Law Wisconsin, currently going to the floor of the State Assembly, and the federal version yet to be introduced. We are also still working on getting equal services, shelter and support for our male abuse victims, as currently there are little to nothing for them.
