Remember Me is an organization started by Victoria Kent to help spread awareness on the minority victims of murdered and missing women and children
In 2010 a 16 year girl named Phylicia Barnes from Monroe N.C. made national news when she disappeared from a Baltimore City apartment complex in broad daylight. Although Phylicia Barnes received more attention than most Victoria realized that there are so many more women and children from the inner city that have no voice and no one to speak for them and that's when the concept of "Remember Me" was born.
Once a month Victoria Kent highlights one missing or murdered woman or child a month, holding vigils for the dead and a gathering called “Honk for her” for the missing. During “Honk for her,” the organization, along with supporters and the victim’s family members, wield signs and photos at the location of the disappearance and urge passing drivers to honk their horns to bring attention to the victim.
Victoria Kent may have started off her journey alone by being the founder of "Remember Me" but Victoria is also a member of the Guardian Angels Baltimore chapter. The fact that the Guardian Angels have been working with advocate groups of Missing Persons along with the history of the public safety presence in the communities the joining of the two groups has been a perfect fit.
As a Guardian Angel Victoria has increased her awareness and participation to not only point out the names of the victims but is actually taking a hands on leader ship stance to educate and show communities how to make a difference when it comes to really getting involved and giving back to our neighborhoods.
