Sex trafficking is widespread and labeling our girls as runaways then
closing their case is not a solution to a serious problem. Each case
must be fully investigated with a sense of urgency every time.
The time has long passed for us to sound the alarm for our missing
loved ones. When 1 or 10 girls or any loved one go missing on our land,
in our country, and our nation’s capital, we cannot afford to wait for
mainstream media coverage. We are their coverage, their voice, their
alarm, we are their prayer, and they are counting on us. We must work
tirelessly to ensure widespread dissemination and their safe return.
