Missing Black Women Deserve Better

Content Warning: We discuss sexual assault, kidnapping, murder, and other triggering topics in this episode, listener discretion is advised.

In this episode we discuss the disproportionate media coverage and law enforcement resources given to missing Black women and girls. We cover the harrowing story of a Black woman who escaped a white supremacist and accused rapist.

And we highlight the Black and Missing Foundation, an organization that brings awareness to missing persons of color and provides vital resources to the loved ones of missing people.

Visit the Black & Missing Foundation website to access their resources, report a missing person, search for a missing person, and to donate.
