Hundreds March in Chicago to Call Attention to Missing, Murdered Black Women

The National Crime Information Center found 90,000 Black women and girls were reported missing in 2020. Another 10,000 were reported missing in 2021. To call attention to the cases that have gone cold, local Chicago organizers worked with the families to create the “We Walk for Her” march. They marched for the fifth year Tuesday, per the Chicago Tribune. Hundreds of Black women, holding signs of their loved ones who have either gone missing or been killed, took to the streets of Bronzeville to demand action and answers. The family of Nancie Walker have been waiting 20 years to find her killer. She was 55 when she went missing and was found 60 days later dismembered in plastic bags along the highway.
