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:

Felicia Johnson, 23, who was found dead on the BNSF railroad tracks in Tukwila on June 26th.  The cause and manner of her death have not yet been determined.
Edward Isaiah Cook III, 64, who was found dead of natural causes at SW 100th and 15th SW on July 4th.

At least 27 people have died outdoor/violent deaths in Seattle already this year.
