Sign Petition for #SAFERYOUTHACT

Join the push to strengthen a New York State law for "runaway" children. #SAFERYOUTHACT would ensure more resources are used to help locate children who are missing. Your signature will encourage legislatures to address these concerns:


  • Provide a substantial increase to the percentage of resources allocated to grass root initiatives and law enforcement agencies

  • Mandate law enforcement to post "runaways" at 25 hours of report filing

  • Stricken how schools document & report absenteeism

  • Require schools and educational institutions, centers, such as sporadic offsite after school programs to create and update annual photo identification databases (without digital alteration) for current year amongst active enrolled student body and submit to NamUs upon from receipt of missing report from local law enforcement

Thanks for submitting!

Bury The Violence knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Back in 2013, our Non-Profit Organization realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Bury The Violence.
