#MissingDCGirls #FindOurGirls There has been a total of 501 missing juveniles in D.C., as of March 2017, of those cases 18 critical cases are still open and 4 non critical. Let’s be clear any child that goes missing is a great concern but let’s recognize that the Metropolitan Police Department (MPDC) tirelessly works to find every missing child.
I challenge everyone to first verify facts before reacting. Many of these youth are runaways. Let’s address this issue for a second. How do we create and build wrap around services to help our youth feel safe at home or find our youth alternative places to live? Let’s work together to come up with real solutions to address the underlying problems.
The increased awareness that has been noted is directly due to the MPDC strategically putting these cases on all of their social media platforms. The current discussions about these missing children in D.C. is a positive step to raise awareness and hopefully save these children from possible human trafficking, organ harvesting, or death.
The great work of the MPDC should be recognized. These officers work day in and day out to find these children. Please give them proper credit for actually getting the public talking and for raising awareness about these missing children. It is a positive sign that the media, Congressional Black Caucus, the Department of Justice, and the Mayor’s office are now actively involved. Hopefully the increased spotlight on these missing children will bring them all back home safely.
For more information on the missing children in D.C. please check the MPDC website:

Stand-Up for Women Vets provides support for women veterans and military women in career transition.
As a woman veteran in transition, you will need more than a resume to ensure a successful transition into the civilian workforce.
We provide (free of charge):
Professional Business Attire
The purpose of this event is not only to honor the service and sacrifice you have made to this great nation, but to also support our Sisters-in-Arms who are in transition or have transitioned and may need an image boost*.
We realize that some women Veterans, especially single mothers, may find the cost of securing an up-to-date professional wardrobe unattainable.
There will be a drawing for a $500 Macy’s gift card and a light lunch will also be provided.
*Professional services are first come, first serve.
