ITS On Me 2
Columbia Private Investigations and Safety Consultations created a 501 c3 Nonprofit organization ITS (I Think Safety) On Me 2 was created to address the BIPOC—Black, Indigenous, and People of Color—women and girls go missing, the disparate treatment their cases receive as a solution to address this crisis.
This silent epidemic is affecting hundreds of thousands of Black, Brown, and Indigenous women and girls across the country. In 2020, 40% of all women and girls reported missing were people of color—100,000 out of 250,000 missing—despite making up just 16% of the population. The disproportionate rate of missing Black and Indigenous women and girls can be attributed to a variety of factors, including higher rates of intimate partner violence against BIPOC women than white women. Were, BIPOC women are frequently viewed as responsible for their situations.
I wanted to be a part of the solution for this epidemic of Missing Black, Brown, and Indigenous women and girls by assisting law enforcement in their search for them because of my law enforcement background.
The full scope of the problem is impossible to measure due to a lack of comprehensive and consistent data regarding missing BIPOC women and girls. In fact, there is no data on missing Hispanic or Latino women, as their cases are captured under the “White” demographic. To address this problem, federal and state governments must step up to address gaps in care, protection, and data collection.
