2023.09.23 Hardly Raining

Protesters rallied in the Chinatown–International District on September 23, 2023 to demand justice for Jaahnavi Kandula.

Kandula, a 23-year-old graduate student, was killed by a police vehicle in January 2023. Body-camera footage released this month revealed that a Seattle Police Department officer had made callous remarks about Kandula’s death, prompting local and international outrage.
