The Fight to Find Our Girls
According to the Women's Media Center, an estimated 64,000-75,000 Black women and girls are currently missing in the U.S. Additionally, the National Center For Missing And Exploited Children confirmed this report, adding that Black women comprise around 7% of the entire population and more than 10% of those missing in the entire country.
The Global Headquarters of Female Empowerment Stories and Voices (GIRLTALKHQ) is keeping this startling story alive with their latest feature "Gone Black Girls: Finding the Forgotten, Telling Their Stories."
"When these girls go missing, then, they’re usually labelled as runaways instead of missing persons — resulting in a lack of urgency to find them."
