The DeKalb County Georgia Medical Examiner and District Attorney's Office are hosting a missing persons event and DNA drive this coming Saturday, May 11, and the Trans Doe Task Force was honored to be invited as a guest alongside some large and very well known organizations.  We applaud DeKalb County for seeking out experts from various minority groups to contribute to this event, and we thank them for including us.

We will be unable to attend in person, but have sent along materials to be distributed.  We will make those available digitally* as well on the day of the event via our social media and on this page.  If you are in the area, we encourage you to go in person as there will be a wealth of resources available for investigators, families and friends of missing persons.

*Update - Here are the materials we sent to be distributed at this event: Main TDTF flyer: How to Help; #IFIGOMISSING flyer; New LAMMP Flyer regarding missing persons (other languages available); several individual missing persons flyers specific to this area.
