Imagine sending your child to school like any other day but they never come home. Then you get the phone call. “Your child is missing.”

Those four words are a parent’s worst nightmare.

For Derrica and Natalie Wilson of Washington, D.C., hearing stories of missing African American children that didn’t get the same help and resources as other children inspired them to step up and create BAM FI; a foundation they say has helped find more than 200 missing people with the assistance of law enforcement, media, and the vigilance of communities.

In recognition of their efforts, the Wilson sisters-in-law received the Community Change Agent award at this year’s Black Girls Rock ceremony.
