There is a lot of people here that can attest that Lika Saliscente and Mike Cee are dubious individuals for their participation on many MySpace blogs that were violent, libelous, threatening and menacing. These two individuals also have targeted people who have openly disagreed with the practices of YVI to the point of attempting to discredit rival child abuse organizations. Petra Luna has gone on record as punishing via humiliating blogs and other media, people even accused of crimes they may or may not have committed. It is more a vigilante organization bent on destroying people, rather than a true advocacy group. To date, they are not responsible for a single piece of worthwhile legislation on the local, state, or national level. These people should be ignored, or even reported, because the income they incur is not properly audited, as they will not release itemization of where exactly YVI money goes.

YVI should be applauded for their unstoppable efforts in many areas that deal with advocacy on many levels. Lika attended the "take back the night" march, a while back. It was therapeutic for myself (a victim in my childhood) and for many others. She was very warm and receiving to my story. It's refreshing to see a common person push like this to get things done to help people.

I met Lika, the founder/owner of YVI online at a different venue. She is very passionate and hard driving at getting legislators to listen to her plea for Aprils Law. I wish her well on all of her endeavors and goals in her years to come. She definitely cares for the kids, not only in Wisconsin, but also in the entire world. GO LIKA!!!

YVI has almost succeeded in passing Aprils Law. I am happy with their performance at the legislature this year and hope to see it get passed possibly in 2012 since the legislature has already closed this year.

This is not a true charity yes they spent the cash to have if noted as such but it is corrupt and run via fraud . The president of a child protection and advocacy is a convicted felon from Iowa. He uses the fraudulent name Michael C Cee in actuality it is Michael D Phipps convicted of sexual assault of a minor and sentenced to 10 years in prison here is his PUBLIC RECORD : IOWA DEPT OF CORRECTIONS NO.1013678 NAME MICHAEL D PHIPPS DOB 1/21/1963 CASE NO. 05771/FECR058986 STATE STAT 709.4 SEXUAL ASSAULT OF A MINOR 3RD DEGREE - INCREASED TO 709.3 SECOND DEGREE 12/18/1991 Michael FLED THE AREA AND WAS ARRESTED AGAIN IN 1992 HIS COURT DISPOSITION DATE IS 6/30/1993 HE JUST MADE IT UNDER THE WIRE WITH THAT DATE FOR LIFE LONG SEXUAL OFFENDERS REGISTRY IN WI. BY 6 MO. This is not only the president of this bogus set up but lives in the home with Rika's 11 yo son. Oxymoron under the law they are trying to pass not only would he still be in prison but life time on the registry. Yes they spent the money to file the forms for non profit co. but there is no evidence of how the monies are used the IRS is being contacted. Sincerely Lawrence W Fishbain atty at law
