Seventh Grader Inspired to Create “We Walk For Her” March to Raise Attention About Missing Black Girls and Women

Far too many Black girls and women have gone missing, abducted, harmed and murdered

On Tuesday, June 19 at 4:30 PM on the last day of school there will be a March, #WeWalkForHer, to raise attention, educate and develop solutions to protect Black girls and women. Far too many beautiful, amazing, strong, loving and talented Black girls are disappearing, being abused and harmed and not enough is being done.

KOCO youth leader, Aziyah Roberts, age 13 “I was angry that Black girls and women around the city going missing, being harmed, abducted and even murdered and not much was being said or done about it. I went to my grandmother and to KOCO. I told them we should do a march, #WeWalkForHer”. “We want everyone to stop and listen because our Black girls are going missing!”, says Ms. Roberts.

Note: March will end at 51st/King Drive not 55th/King Drive.
