EVAWI 2021 Sessions on Serving Diverse Populations: Saving Our Girls: Being Young, Missing, and Black and the Prevalence of Sex Trafficking

Hosted By: EVAWII
Date: April 6-8, 2021
Time: Time Pending
Description: The story of missing Black girls in Washington, DC in 2017 played a pivotal role in national news coverage about missing teens and, while officials tried to explain the numerous cases of those who went missing, far too many of them remain unresolved. The Black and Missing Foundation indicates that nearly 40 percent of all missing people in the country are people of color. Yet, today, the missing girls in DC receive little attention. Moreover, most of these girls come from marginalized, under-resourced communities and are primarily low-income, which in Washington DC, a city of haves and have-nots, exposes a part of the capital the rest of America may rarely see. A deeper, more nuanced problem, that includes at-risk Black girls, whose lives and struggles sometimes involve sex trafficking, that is often ignored.
