Women in Black

Every time a homeless person is found dead outside or dies by violence in King County, WHEEL (a homeless women’s organizing effort) and the Church of Mary Magdalene (an ecumenical day ministry) mobilize for our silent witnessing vigil called Women in Black.

Today, we stand  in honor and memory of Rebekah Woods, 43, who also went by the name Valerie Lorriane Clarke.  On May 28th she was found dead on I5, near Holgate St.  Rebekah was a loved member of both the Mary’s Place community, as well as the Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC).

At least 16 people have died outdoor/violent deaths in Seattle already this year.
