Our Vision

Our vision is a world where everyone is safe from sexual and domestic violence. Every woman's life has value. The #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are creating an avalanche of stories across the country. Billie didn't live to tell her story, so we have to tell it for her.

Our Story

Our story is Billie's story. Our story is Ashly's story. We first met Ashly when she spoke at the capitol in Little Rock about her mom's death almost three decades ago. She was pleading with us to care about her mom. She's been pleading for years to get justice long overdue.

This is a project of Women Lead Arkansas, a nonprofit made of women who don't wait around for other people to right wrongs. Since no one else was willing to step up for Ashly, we decided we would.

Join us on the journey to seek the truth in this real-time, serial documentary investigation. We can't do it without your help, so please go donate now. This is going to be a crowd-funded and crowd-sourced investigation. We look forward to you scouring the evidence with us, tracking down people with any knowledge of the players, and making sure we don't miss anything!
