Cincinnati Families Continue To Search For Closure................

Reach Out: Work with families in your community and make a difference

This will be the premiere event of the year that gives new meaning to family advocacy for justice in Southern Ohio.  Our purpose is to highlight UCanSpeakForMe's major role in the educational process of how families grieving the violent loss of a loved one in this area are served. 

​Knowledge is power. Make plans to join our local and Statewide prestigious panelist for this enlightening discussion. Attend to ask these professionals about the justice system, why are there cold cases, what is the role of the Corner's and Prosecutor's Offices. This is the community's opportunity to not just listen, but be heard, and learn how to become proactive.

For additional information contact the offices of UCanSpeakForMe at 513-404-3063, or email us

Don't forget to join us on Facebook @ucanspeakforme.

UCanSpeakForMe will be hosting it's 9th Annual Cincinnati Summit Conference. .

The latest batch of  Cold Case Cards were delivered to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department recently by CEO and Founder Hope Dudley.

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.

This is a story about a mother's last out pouring expression of grief over the lost of her child to senseless violence.

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.
