Earlier this year, the Women’s March On Washington drew crowds that totaled close to 5 million attendees. Simultaneous marches were held in cities worldwide as women from all walks of life banded together to protest against various women’s issues from equal pay to reproductive rights, which have long been central to political debate.

But where were these women when DC’s town hall meeting to address  missing black and latina girls was taking place? Nowhere in sight.

 

Emotions ran high when young black girl got on the mic to ask why children in her neighborhood have to worry constantly about getting kidnapped and going missing.

What are your thoughts on DC’s town hall meeting attendance? Are you surprised that the crowd was comprised solely of African Americans?
