There is no present or future—only the past, happening over and over again, now.
-Eugene O’Neill (sent to Amy by Brents on March 25, 2006)
Brent Brents' story brings to light issues of rape and child abuse, as well as domestic violence. As he became a perpetrator, most of his victims were prostitutes. The following organizations are available to those who need help.
RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network)
"At any given moment, more than 1,100 trained volunteers are on duty and available to help victims at RAINN-affiliated crisis centers across the country."
"A faith-based non-profit organization created to assist women desiring to leave sexually oriented businesses. Our clients include women working in prostitution, escort services, exotic dancing and pornography."
American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
"The leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide."
National Domestic Violence Hotline
"Hotline advocates are available for victims and anyone calling on their behalf to provide crisis intervention, safety planning, information and referrals."
Many of Brent Brents' victims were prostitutes, women who are especially vulnerable to violence. Therefore, part of the proceeds from the sale of every edition of Diary of a Predator: A Memoir will go to Street's Hope, a Denver non-profit organization dedicated to helping women leave the sex-for-sale industry.
