Each year, hundreds of thousands of people go missing in the United States. Although African Americans represent thirteen percent of the population, people of color make up roughly forty percent of missing persons cases.
On Oct. 8, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed SB 673 into law, creating the new Ebony Alert System for missing Black youth and young women which will be put into place by the California Highway system starting Jan. 1, 2024.
Your financial donation to the Black and Missing Foundation helps advance our mission to help bring awareness to missing people of color around the nation; conduct searches; and educate our communities on personal safety. All donations are tax-deductible.
One of the most effective ways to bring awareness to “our missing” is by sharing their profiles on your social media and with your friends and family. One share may be all it takes to find the missing link or information that could help reunite a family or provide closure.
If you believe you have sighted a person who is listed by the police as missing or within our missing persons database, please submit an anonymous tip. All information you provide will be treated as confidential and will not be forwarded without your permission.
