WA—Survivors group deliver letter to Seattle City Council

Mayor accused of child sexual abuse by four men

Recently uncovered documents reveal Oregon's Child Protective Services found Mayor Ed Murray sexually abused his foster son

Four Mayoral candidates, one Council Member and the Seattle LGBTQ Commission have since called for the Mayor to resign 

Victims believe it is important that the City Council hear their voices on this issue as well 

 

WHAT:

Holding signs and childhood photos at a sidewalk news conference, child sex abuse victims and their supporters will:

-explain their position on the proposed resignation of Seattle’s Mayor, and

- hand out copies of the letter they will be delivering to the City Council

They will then proceed up to the council chamber on the 2nd floor of City Hall to:

- hand deliver a copy of the letter to the full Council, and

- if permitted, briefly address the group on this issue.
