Black and Missing Foundation Stands with Congressional Black Caucus:

Urge Feds to Investigate Missing Girls of Color

The Black and Missing Foundation (BAMFI) commends Congressional Black Caucus chairman Cedric Richmond, D-La., and Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC) for requesting an investigation into the disappearances of young girls of color across the nation.

In a letter dated March 21, 2017, Richmond and Holmes Norton called on AG Jeff Sessions and FBI Director James Comey to “devote the resources necessary to determine whether these developments {of our missing Black and Latinx girls}are an anomaly or whether they are indicative of an underlying trend that must be addressed.”

BAMFI looks forward to partnering with the members of the CBC to appeal to federal administrations for aid in protecting and returning these young women to their families.
