Roger Kemp worked tirelessly to bring his daughter’s murderer to justice. During that struggle he created a billboard campaign which posts criminals pictures on billboards that has been adopted by law enforcement agencies across the United States including the F.B.I. and the hit series America’s Most Wanted. To this day these billboards continue to be used and have apprehended murderers by the hundreds. The Kemp’s founded The Ali Kemp Educational Foundation and fostered the creation of the T.A.K.E. Defense Program. Mr. Kemp is a past board member of the Ad Hoc Commission Against Crime, which focuses on the inner city of Kansas City, and a past committee member of three administrations of the Kansas Attorney General who reviewed and awarded grants to shelters and homes for victims of child and sexual abuse. Roger has remained focused his efforts building The Ali Kemp Educational Foundation and the T.A.K.E. Defense program, which has trained over 67,000 girls and women ranging from 12 to 90 years of age. John Walsh; Americas Most Wanted had this to say about the Kemp’s in his forward in the book “Ali Was Here” “Kathy and Roger didn’t let Ali’s killer claim another victim. They took their hurt and anger and turned it into something positive and helpful to others.”
