We truly believe collective impact will uncover answers in cold cases—you can help!

Consider this

More than 200,000 unsolved cases have gone cold since 1980, and murder clearance rates continue to drop. With equity for BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and other underserved victims not prioritized in the true crime community—together we can do better.

Victims Deserve a Voice; Families Deserve Answers, and No One Should Be a Statistic.
