HELP US PREVENT ANOTHER UNIMAGINABLE
On March 29, 2019, Samantha Josephson, a 21 year-old senior at the University of South Carolina, was kidnapped and murdered when she was targeted by a person posing as a rideshare driver. Immediately following this unfathomable tragedy, Samantha's parents, Seymour and Marci Josephson, set out to educate others on the importance of ride share safety so that no other family would have to suffer this kind of loss.
The #WHATSMYNAME Foundation was established in honor of their daughter, Samantha Josephson.

RIDE-SHARING BILL NAMED FOR NJ WOMAN KILLED BY FAKE UBER DRIVER GETS NEW CHANCE TO PASS
In the last Congress, Marci and Seymour Josephson saw the U.S. House pass without opposition legislation named for their late daughter, murdered after getting into a fake Uber car while at college.
But the Senate never took up the measure and it failed to become law.
Now Rep. Chris Smith, who counts the Josephsons as his constituents, is trying again. Smith has reintroduced what is known as “Sami’s Law,” requiring vehicles for ride-sharing companies such as Uber and Lyft clearly be identified before a passenger gets in.

Movement Springs from Samantha Josephson Tragedy #WHATSMYNAME
Seymour Josephson took the stage at West Lake Park in downtown Robbinsville, NJ facing a few hundred silent onlookers and a dozen national broadcast cameramen. He collected himself for moment before speaking, as those moments had recently become scant.
Just four earlier, on March 29, Josephson’s daughter Samantha, 21, was enjoying her last semester at the University at South Carolina. A day later, on March 30, he was trying to grasp her horrific death at the hands of a stranger.
