FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- This led to the decision of expanding their purpose to help others who feel like the criminal justice system needs to be improved.
"Since our last meeting, we had 1,019 people that followed us on our Facebook, and we now have close to 5,000," Nasim Walker said.
Walker said lately the group is reaching others who are victims of violence whose cases haven't been solved and people who feel their cases were treated unfairly.
"Victims of violent crimes like rape victims, victims who have children who were molested, and there's no justice being done for them,"Walker added.
Now they are taking their efforts beyond Fort Wayne to connect with others who are hurting, thus coming up with a Flip This City website.
Faith Jones, a high school student, took it upon herself to do a little research and reached out.
She created one for them giving them a larger platform that will consist of personal stories, information on voting, and other resources to help families.
"I met them all and I learned their names. I learned their stories and I learned the names of the children who died, and things that aren't being done that need to be done. I decided that night that it’s my place to help. these are my people," Jones said.
The hope going forward is that more people will share their stories to the website so justice will be served.
