"If we are quiet then the community is quiet. So we want them to know that we are standing out here saying Stop The Violence in our community. No more names no more lives". Hope Dudley

UCanSpeakForMe On The Move

We Must Continue To Speak Out

No one can prevent crime except by individual choices.  But when crime occurs the authorities want to find the guilty.  Families want justice.  The process can be complicated.

My name is Hope Dudley.  My son was the 55th homicide victim in the City of Cincinnati in September 2007.

Join our postings and conversations on Facebook and Twitter. Share your story and add your voice to the thousands of others calling for the senseless violence to our youth to stop. Watch our television news stories highlighting how we help families.

This is suppose to be a festive time of the year for families. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas all are traditions that bring family members near and far together for a celebration. As the holiday seasons approach, UCanSpeakForMe families are again faced with a empty chair at the dinner table. For some the loss of child or close relative may have been months ago. Maybe an open case still has not been solved for some years. The memories and the pain of that loss are still fresh.

Local Cincinnati media has given a voice to UCanSpeakForMe families. It is hard take your eyes off the UCanSpeakForMe posters in these two reports that have become a Cincinnati symbol for all organizations calling for justice.
