We had a very special, very emotional dedication of new Leaves of Remembrance at the Seattle Justice Center on September 12th. Sabrina Tate’s father, Tommi Tate, her mother Kellie Sevier, and a brother drove from Spokane for the ceremony. Her father said, “Now we have a place to come in Seattle to remember.”

From noon to 1 PM, we stood a Women in Black vigil for 13 new outdoors/violent deaths. At 1 PM, we dedicated four new Leaves, for Annelise Harrison, Gerald L. Peters, Sabrina Tate, and Michael Wurtz.
