City leaders gather for Town Hall meeting on violence


SEATTLE — City leaders came together Monday night for a Town Hall meeting aimed at making Seattle a safer place.

With 21 homicides in the past six months, Seattle residents are fed up and demanding answers. Many people in attendance at Monday’s meeting say they’ve heard a lot of talk from city leaders, but not enough focus on solutions for making the city safer.

Members of the Seattle Peace Chorus gathered outside of Town Hall at the memorial for Gloria Leonidas, who was gunned down just a few weeks ago by Café Racer shooter Ian Stawicki.

“What do you do? What does one person really do?” said Bob Shupe of the Seattle Peace Chorus.

Inside Town Hall, a panel of city leaders focused on issues ranging from gun control to the effectiveness of school systems and trust in the police force.

    Gloria Leonidas was a fighter! She was the Deborah Samson and Molly Pitcher of Seattle, Washington!
