Photos from yesterday’s Stand for Compassion event held in Pioneer Square

The March 15th beating of a homeless man who was sleeping on the Seattle Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Pioneer Square rallied a diverse cross-section of individuals and organizations who held a “Stand for Compassion” gathering yesterday near where the attack took place in Occidental Square.

The Mayor called on the community to take this moment of pain and turn it into a moment of change by embracing peace and caring for the city’s most vulnerable.
