There are many different ways to help families understand the many emotions to find closure, and options to work with local authorities to seek justice lawfully. Two organizations leading the way is UCanSpeakForMe and Cincinnati CrimeStoppers.

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 investigation still has not been solved for some years. The memories and the pain of that loss are still fresh.
We at UCanSpeakForMe would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the Ohio Attorney General's Office (the Victims Crime Section), Cincinnati Police Department, the Hamilton County Sheriff and Prosecutor's Offices, and other local agencies for their courageous support in 2016. A special thanks to the local Cincinnati media that has given a voice to UCanSpeakForMe families.
Let's continue to work together in 2017 to Stop The Violence and seek justice for families affected by senseless crime.

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.
