City Hall Park & King County Courthouse
Zenyu is honored to once again support this annual event on Thursday, March 5th, that will honor lives lost to domestic and sexual violence. We will be opening this healing space with prayer and meditation. This annual event is hosted by API Chaya, an organization that provides domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking services to Asian, South Asian, and Pacific Islander communities. This vigil will honor the lives of Susanna Remerata Blackwell, her unborn child, baby Kristine, Phoebe Dizon, and Veronica Laureta, who were shot and killed at the King County Courthouse in 1995 by Susanna’s estranged and abusive husband.
The vigil theme “Kapwa”, is a Tagalog term meaning the shared interconnectedness among and between beings. By seeing the self in others, we are able to wholeheartedly support our communities while taking accountability for the violence existing in our world. Kapwa seeks to provide the vigil as a transformative and healing space of understanding through celebrating our communities' legacy of resilience and survivorship.
