Washington CeaseFire luncheon
The award was presented at the annual Washington CeaseFire luncheon held at the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle on Tuesday, May 24, 2016.
Washington CeaseFire, a statewide organization dedicated to reducing gun violence, gives the Ancil Payne Award to outstanding civic leaders and advocates for gun safety measures.
“For too many, the specter of gun violence continues to plague our communities and families,” said Sen. David Frockt, D-Seattle.
“I am honored to receive Washington CeaseFire’s Ancil Payne Award and pledge to continue working toward our common goal of reducing gun violence.”
This is the second year in a row that a local legislator has been honored with this award. In 2015 the Ancil Payne Civic Leader of the Year Award was given to 32nd District Rep. Ruth Kagi, for her work as a legislator to reduce gun violence, especially among children.
Lake Forest Park and Kenmore are in the 46th District; Shoreline is in the 32nd District.
