Black and Missing Foundation, Inc. (BAM FI) has launched a new online tool -“Our Untold Stories” of Missing Persons of Color – which allows the victims’ families to tell the story of their missing loved ones using video, pictures or letters.
“There are an overwhelming number of missing persons of color,” said Derrica Wilson, president and CEO of Black and Missing Foundation, Inc. “Everyone with a missing family member clings to hope. Hope that their loved one will return home. Hope that law enforcement will be proactive. Hope that the media will get involved. We are providing families with the hope they need and deserve – a platform to share their untold stories.”
Victims’ families can make and share their own videos, pictures and letters on the circumstances of their missing loved one and send them to us. Videos will be aired on BAMFI.org, You Tube and social media sites. For submissions, guidelines and tips, visit www.BAMFI.org.
The “Our Untold Stories” will begin with a plea for help from Valencia Harris, whose daughter, Unique, has been missing for over a year.
