”The most unprotected person in America is the black woman” Malcolm X

In July 2014 it was reported that more 64,000 Black women and girls were missing in the United States.
The Associated Press reports that 501 predominantly Black and Latino minors have gone missing in D.C since the start of 2017; as of March, 22 of the cases were still open.

According to the latest FBI data, as of February 2017, there are a total of 13, 591 active missing person records for African American women stored in its National Crime Information Center. Of that total, 8, 042 were of the ages of 18 and under; 1, 419 were between the ages of 19-21.

The National Crime Information Center showed there were 170, 899 missing black children under 18 in the United States.
And in the month of March it was reported in Washington D.C, that 34 teenage black girls who ages range from 11-18 are missing.

The word problem can not even sum up this crisis, this is truly a nightmare and another disappointing factor is no one is saying or doing anything about it.
It’s Time For That To End!
We will not remain silent and allow this to happen and not say anything.
