Founded initially as Cold Case Digital Advocacy and later rebranded as Cold Case Advocacy, our journey began in 2021. As a bootstrapped endeavor, The founder established Cold Case Advocacy with a visionary approach known as “digital advocacy.” This innovative concept involves leveraging digital technology to educate, inform, and mobilize individuals around critical issues. Our focus was clear: drive tangible change by increasing news coverage, reviving online petitions to reach new audiences, and researching legislative pathways that could prevent future families from encountering similar roadblocks.
Recognizing the potential of social media to ignite fresh interest, we embarked on a mission to elevate public awareness of a 38-year-old unsolved homicide case in upstate NY. Heightened visibility could generate the pressure required to reprioritize the cold case investigation and encourage law enforcement to take the pivotal step of DNA evidence testing.
At Cold-Case Advocacy (CCA), our mission resonates with compassion and commitment. We stand by families affected by unsolved homicides, extending empathetic support. We aim to empower these families by providing advocacy resources and a platform for active engagement, enabling them to champion their loved ones’ causes and draw greater attention to their unresolved cases.
Our efforts aim to amplify their stories, shedding light on the obstacles they confront while seeking answers about their loved ones’ unsolved cases. Moreover, our mission extends to advocating for innovative solutions to alleviate the backlog of unresolved murder cases in New York State.
