EVENT DATE: Sep 28, 2016
Katy was a college student on track to graduate with honors in June of 2016 before her life was tragically cut short in a senseless act of relationship violence. She died of an anoxic brain injury following strangulation. Katy Straalsund was a beautiful, intelligent and caring daughter, sister, niece and friend with a bright future ahead of her. She was to graduate with honors in Speech & Hearing Sciences at the University of Washington this summer and had been recently accepted into a teaching abroad program in Barcelona, Spain. She had a vision to give others a voice! We are committed to a life long goal to see that her voice is heard and to help prevent, educate and support others who find themselves in abusive relationships before its to late. Please help Katy's voice be heard!
