Ep45: (Part 2) Minnesota's Missing & Murdered Black Women and Girls

This is part 2 of a four-part series will explore the issue of missing and murdered black women and girls, which has been ignored for too long. Part one was dropped on August 10th. If you haven’t listened to this first part, please do so and come back to this episode when finished. I discuss the stories of these women/girls of color when this became a social issue, how to change the statistics, and what organizations are helping. 

In this episode, we will discuss the lives of Tahany Abdi-Orman Erbob, Antoinette Dana Hawkins, Stephanie Leann Smith. and Elle Ragin.

  • If you know of a missing or murdered African American woman or girl, please contact your local law enforcement agency or one of the organizations listed above. You can also call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).

988 Lifeline isn't just a phone service. It's also a comprehensive online resource. On their website, you can find a wealth of information about suicide prevention. You can learn about the warning signs of suicide, how to talk to someone who might be suicidal, and where to find additional resources. Especially when it comes to my indigenous, black, neurodivergence, and lgbtq+ community!
