23rd Annual Vigil: Finding Refuge in Each Other
March 1st 2018
King County Courthouse
Volunteer shifts: 1pm - 5pm, 3pm - 7:30pm
On March 2, 1995, Susana Remerata Blackwell and her unborn child, baby Kristine, as well as Susana’s friends Phoebe Dizon and Veronica Laureta, were murdered by Susana’s estranged husband in the King County Courthouse. Join us on March 1st, 2018 from 4:30pm - 6:30pm for the 23rd Annual Vigil at the King County Courthouse to remember all lives lost to domestic violence. This year’s theme is “Kapwa: Finding Refuge in Each Other.” Here at API Chaya, we are dedicated to generating a culture of safety and care, where survivors are believed and supported. 

We also want to acknowledge the many other forms of violence that are tearing our families and communities apart, including police violence, Islamophobia, transphobia, deportations and much more. Survivors of domestic and sexual violence and our communities are deeply impacted by these systems of power and control. 

If you have questions, contact Thank you for your time and support.
