  1. Thank you all for the demonstration supporting all who live in our great diverse community! What a crowd.

  2. Thank you neighbors for marching!

  3. Great work on keeping all safe with organizer traffic monitors! I did not see any police presence and all was peaceful. People did a good job not engaging an All Lives Matter man yelling.

  4. Neighbors in West Seattle Says:

    Marisha Tolliver – You are a prophet. Your words ring true.

    In solidarity and love,

    Your neighbors in West Seattle
