Understanding The Recent New York Task Force For Missing BIPOC Women
The newly enacted New York State Senate Bill S4266A, endorsed by the governor, is set to establish a task force dedicated to addressing the issue of missing women and girls belonging to the black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities. The task force aims to collaborate with governmental agencies in New York to develop policies that address the concerning lack of attention and care towards missing and murdered BIPOC women and girls.
Members of the Task Force
Comprising nine representatives from entities such as the Division of Criminal Justice Services, New York State Police, and the State Office of Family and Children's Services, alongside members appointed by the Senate and Assembly, the task force will be funded through an allocation in the FY24 Enacted Budget.
Objectives of the Task Force
The objectives of the task force include assessing the widespread problem of missing women and girls, rectifying disparities in the treatment of such cases, and formulating policies to enhance community awareness. The task force is mandated to conduct hearings, with a requirement to submit a comprehensive report of its findings and recommendations within a two-year timeframe.
Missing BIPOC Women: A Growing Catastrophe
Disturbing statistics from the FBI’s National Crime Information Center highlight that 43 percent of the reported 271,000 missing women and girls in 2022 were Black, Indigenous, or people of color, emphasizing the urgency of addressing this pervasive issue. The missing BIPOC women and girl’s category encompasses various situations, including abductions, sex trafficking, and runaways, with these individuals facing the compounded challenges of racism and sexism, resulting in enduring social and economic obstacles.
