RESPECT OUR DAUGHTERS: My Sister’s Keeper Walk

The Walk to End the Violence, Murder and Trafficking of Our Black, Brown and Indigenous Women of Color- July 27, 2022

Frantz Beasley, CEO & President of Respect Our Daughters, began walking across the country, from Los Angeles to the Statue of Liberty to raise awareness and to identify solutions to end the violence, murder, and trafficking of our Black, Brown, and Indigenous Women of Color.

Mr. Beasley stated, “Together we can find where the gaps exist, discover solutions, and raise funding for those organizations and families on the front lines who work tirelessly to work for justice and fight against this disgusting reality which takes place in our communities to our Women of Color.” An important focus is to connect with survivors, families of the missing and murdered, and to engage with various law enforcement agencies, community organizations, activists, and policymakers.

Mr. Beasley has walked over 1900 miles to date. He is currently walking from Dallas, TX and will arrive in Houston, TX on Wednesday, July 27, 2022 at the Houston Police Officers Union: Breckenridge Porter Building for a welcome gathering from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. The center is located at 1602 State Street, Houston, TX 77007.

If you would like join Frantz and walk to the center, you can meet him the following location:

  • 12:00 PM at the Fuel Depot, 1514 White Oak Drive, Houston, TX 77009 (1.2 miles)

For safety, please take precautions to beat the heat during the walk due to the high temperatures expected that day.

Mr. Beasley stated, “I am grateful to the Houston Police Department, the Houston Police Officers’ Union and community partners for their support and for the opportunity to partner with organizations and agencies that meaningfully align with the purpose of the My Sister’s Keeper Walk.”

We are excited to invite everyone to join in welcoming Mr. Beasley to Houston, TX to support the purpose of this movement that is addressing a crisis hiding in plain sight in our communities.
