I don’t know if you guys have noticed the amount of Black and Latino women that have gone missing just in the last week from D.C. 20 missing persons have been reported, 10 being minors in the Nation’s capital. 14 were reported in the last 24 hours alone.
D.C on average reports 200 missing persons cases a month over the past 5 years according to USA Today. In 2017, it’s been an average of 190, which is a decease but still way too many. As of yesterday, 6 of the minors have been found but 4 are still missing.
It is said that women of color have a tendency to run away or leave their home, so they aren’t that quick to label them as “missing”. Over 64,000 colored women are missing in the United States right now. That is ridiculous and the rate that they are going missing in D.C is alarming.
Please, if you see a missing flyer on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, anywhere, like and share. Your post could be what helps a child or women of color get back home to her family. Let’s start a movement and make the #FindOurGirls photo your profile picture and avi to show our support to those who don’t know where their love one is.
