Press Release!
The staff of Peas In Their Pods offer assistance to families of missing African American children with the creation of the RILYA Alert system.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PRLog (Press Release) – Jun 03, 2009 – In a continuing effort to bring attention to the plight of missing African-American children throughout the United States, Peas In Their Pods founder Janice Lowery, president Gaétane Borders, and the Peas In Their Pods volunteers continue to work tirelessly to inform the nation about the epidemic rate at which African American children are abducted or endangered.

“Statistically, approximately 42 percent of missing children are African American, yet many times these children receive the least amount of media exposure. This negatively impacts the likelihood that they will be safely reunited with their loved ones. Peas In Their Pod’s goal is to spread awareness, and improve the reporting and search system as it pertains to African American children” states Ms. Borders.

The organization created the RILYA Alert System which was designed to disseminate information regarding missing African American Children quickly and effectively, thereby improving the odds that they will be found. Founder, Ms. Lowery adds, the RILYA Alert is not a replacement of the Amber Alert, but rather an extension created to work for children when the criteria for an Amber Alert is not met. Because the criteria for a RILYA Alert is more inclusive, we can often help in finding a child who otherwise may not get the media attention necessary.”

The criteria for a Rilya Alert is:
• The abduction is of a child age 17 years or younger
source: FPR

• The parent must have contacted law enforcement to report child missing.
• A RILYA Alert may also be issued if the child is classified as a runaway by the police. If the parent has reported missing child and has convincing evidence that child does not have a history of running away, an alert will be initiated within the 1st hour.
• The law-enforcement agency believes the child is in imminent danger of serious bodily injury or death.
• All children of color meeting the criteria for the Amber Alert will also receive the RILYA Alert If these criteria are met. This information may include descriptions and pictures of the missing child, the suspected abductor, and a suspected vehicle along with any other information available and valuable to identifying the child and suspect.

Peas In Their Pods is comprised of a regional staff of volunteer representatives throughout the United States, and their website provides information and parenting advice with the goal of protecting children of all color from becoming victimized or abused. Janice and Gaétane host a weekly radio webcast every Sunday, at 7:00 PM Central at www.blogtalkradio.com/PEASINTHEIRPODS. In addition, Peas In Their Pods have recently launched an online magazine titled PEAS which not only highlights missing children, but also aims to educate and entertain.
