STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) -- Mary Baldwin College students remembered missing minority children Tuesday by wearing face paint.
They painted each others faces with the names of minority children and the dates they went missing to remind everyone of kids that aren't with their families.
Mary Baldwin's Black Student Alliance sponsored the event.
The group said the reason they wanted to do this was to bring attention to these kids, since many missing minorities don't receive as much media attention.
"These children belong to all of us, whether you're Black, White, Latino, Asian. Black Student Alliance cares and we as a community should care anytime a child goes missing. We just want every child to receive the proper attention and to be highlighted so they can be reunited with their families," said Lisa Wilson, with the Black Student Alliance.
The Black Student Alliance is having a rally on campus Tuesday night at 7 in the Hunt Dining Hall to remember the missing minority children.
