"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all
-- Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)
Message from Black and Missing Foundation Founders:
At Black and Missing Foundation, Inc, (BAM FI) we believe that every missing person, regardless of age, race, mental ability or circumstance, deserves awareness.
Families with a missing loved one cling to hope. Hope that their loved one will return home. Hope that law enforcement will be proactive. Hope that the media will get involved. Hope that members of the community will come forward with vital information to bring their loved one home.
At BAM FI, we are dedicated to "BEING THE VOICE FOR THE MISSING" by providing a platform of hope for the overwhelming number of missing persons of color.
Together, we can and will make a difference!
Derrica Wilson and Natalie Wilson
