FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The victim advocacy group, JAVA, is working on a new project to spread their message to more people and try to get justice for more homicide victims. 

JAVA has been holding monthly meetings for families of homicide victims since September of 2018, but recently learned they can have a TV show on Access Fort Wayne. 

"It's called Straight Talk with JAVA. Where, we're getting together, we're going to introduce the leadership team so you all can get to know who we are, and why we're passionate about JAVA and we're also going to have different stories," said Theresa Juillerat, with JAVA leadership. 

The show will give families a chance to tell their stories and give information that could help solve the cases that have gone cold. 

"These are ultimately people. Brothers and sisters and family and friends that were loved and we want to make sure that their voices are heard, and their memories are kept alive," Juillerat said. 

Amy Davis said the show will help those who can't always make it to the monthly meetings or watch on Facebook.  

"I want every family to have their justice. And some have been waiting so long, and I just want them to be able to see that day," Davis said. 

She also hopes Straight Talk with JAVA will bring witnesses forward. 

"Maybe it will bring somebody to the police department or to Crime Stoppers to say, 'I saw the show and I have some information I want to give.'"

Right now it's not clear when the show will start to air, but FOX 55 will continue to monitor the progress.
