Join us on June 17 to honor Eina Kwon and unite for safety
June 16, 2023
Eina Kwon, a pregnant 34-year old woman, was murdered in the Belltown area of Seattle Tuesday in what appears to be a random attack. The child, which was almost full term, lived briefly but did not survive.
Tomorrow, we will honor a woman who friends have called “an incredible human being.”
We will meet Saturday, June 17, at 4th Ave & Lenora Street at 10:45 and hold a moment of silence at 11am. From there, we will march to Abuirya Bento House, the Kwons’ restaurant, and rally from 11:30 until noon.
Kwon’s husband has lost a wife and child. Their first child has lost a mother. Countless others have lost a beloved friend or family member. By gathering, we will show our support for them as they go through an unfathomable loss.
For many, this is a tipping point. Citizens are tired of the violence and the lack of action when solutions are proposed. We can honor Eina’s life in a moment of silence tomorrow, and by pushing our leaders to take action so no other family suffers like the Kwons are now.
We hope you see you tomorrow. Please share this link with your friends and on social media to encourage others to join.
