Special Guests

"I support BAMFI because at any moment, this could be one of us or our children. You don’t have to be a victim or know someone personally who has disappeared to spread awareness and be involved. This is our community and we are all connected! All of us need to be accountable and do our part in order to make a difference."
Monique Samuels, Bronze Sponsor

TV Personality, Real Housewives of Potomac

"I want to thank BAMFI for this recognition and appreciate how BAMFI supports the Metropolitan Police Department daily to highlight the issue both missing youth and adults of color; without their efforts many families would not get the needed support or information needed thru the process."

Journalist, NEWSONE

"I support BAMFI because I am outraged that our children - black and brown children - can go missing in this country and be treated as an afterthought. Where is the outcry for these children? WE have to be the voice for the voiceless and fight to bring our children home!! I support as a mother, daughter, wife and sister and plead with you to care enough to support and do something NOW before this hits close to your home."
Genise Shelton

TV Personality, Married to Medicine

"I can't think of a BETTER way to spend my Saturday morning than helping BAMFI raise funds to continue the important work they are doing around the country in bringing our little Black and Brown girls home safely. I hope you will come out, walk with us and help us continue their mission of finding our missing and lost children."

"I participate in the BAMFI 'Hope Without Boundaries 5K' walk because I want to use my platform to bring awareness to this issue that is affecting our communities."
