On March 2, 1995, Susana Remerata Blackwell, Phoebe Dizon, Veronica Laureta, and Baby Kristine (Ms. Blackwell’s unborn child) were murdered by Susana’s estranged husband in the King County Courthouse. Since that day, the Asian & Pacific Islander Women & Family Safety Center (Safety Center) has been committed to holding an annual vigil to remember these women and others whose lives were destroyed by violence.

On March 4, 2010, the 15th Annual Candlelight Vigil will be held for this purpose at the King County Courthouse. We hope that you will join from 4-6 p.m. in sending the message that “domestic violence will NOT be tolerated in our communities.

If you have questions or would like to endorse the event, please contact April Nishimura at [email protected] or Sincere Born at [email protected].

Saturday, March 6, 11:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M.
