A List of Missing Girls in D.C. and What You Can Do

If you’ve opened Twitter or Instagram lately, hopefully you’ve seen the trending #DCmissinggirls tag. Many are outraged at the lack of media coverage when, as of yesterday, there are 501 estimated cases of missing juveniles in D.C., most of them being black or Latino. 10 children of color even went missing in 2 weeks. In March, however, many black girls in D.C. have gone missing at around the same time. Fortunately, where the news is lacking to cover, social media has posted it’s frustrations and spread the word (somewhat).  A metropolitan police representative even said that they have been sharing them more on social media, perhaps in hopes of a more effective way to gain awareness. By going through the official D.C. police department twitter (@DCpolicedept), you can easily find the names and files of missing teenagers. Much of the coverage the situation does have however, lacks information of the missing persons or names, so below is a list complete with case files- because how are we supposed to identify missing people if we don’t know who they are?

Researching this information was heartbreaking. Unfortunately, missing people of color’s files have gone under the radar far too often. So, while the media doesn’t cover these cases as proficiently as they should, you can help. Keep tweeting, retweeting, sharing. Follow the D.C. police department accounts, all of these case files can be found there. Call into radio stations and news channels, put up flyers. KEEP IT TRENDING. Be aware, make others aware. Do not let this slip away and be forgotten, do not let these people slip away and be forgotten. Social Media can save lives.
