We're using the power of collective impact to bring peace to families of murdered or missing people by combining data, technology, and the wisdom of the community.
More than 200,000 cases have gone cold since 1980, where either a murder took place or a missing person was considered to have experienced serious bodily harm. With no shortage of crime, unfortunately, equity of resources and attention paid to cases depends on the characteristics of the victim. In 1965, the murder clearance rate was 91%. Since then, it has dropped to 62% as of 2017.
We're working with families by combining publicly available information, with the ever-growing wisdom of the crowd, to do something that matters and find the intersection of justice, peace, and closure.
