Several dozen homeless advocates hit the streets of downtown as part of an organized protest.
Marchers, many dressed in heavy coats and knit caps this chilly morning, walked from Westlake Park to Seattle City Hall. The activists’ goal is to get 1,000 people off Seattle streets by summer. Protesters plan to attend the Committee to End Homelessness in King County Governing Board Meeting inside City Hall at 8:30 a.m., according to a news release sent out by the City of Seattle.
Seattle police are monitoring the event.
