Ceasefire Hosts “Day of Remembrance”

On Sunday, Washington Ceasefire hosted a “Day of Remembrance” to commemorate the victims of gun violence in Washington State. Members of the Alliance team joined dozens of other gun violence prevention advocates at Green Lake in Seattle for a short program.

The lineup featured a:

  • Survivor;
  • Physician;
  • Musician; and
  • Senator Frockt and Representative Pollett

All of the speakers shared their personal experience with gun violence and urged the crowd to be active in the political process.

After the remarks, attendees planted hundreds of daffodils in a designated area of the park. We’re so grateful to Washington Ceasefire for bringing together the community in this way each year.
