CCF mourns Kip Tokuda’s Passing

CCF mourns the passing of Kip Tokuda. Rep Tokuda was an extraordinary champion for children as both an exceptional advocate for vulnerable children during his time as a State Representative, and, before that, in a number of different child advocacy roles including the Executive Director of the Washington State Council for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect. Kip was a great friend of children and families, and was driven by tremendous and compassionate advocacy for the very young, and vulnerable, a passion for ensuring racially equitable policies in our state, and monumental legislative efforts like passing the landmark Special Needs Adoption bill. We say goodbye to a dear friend.

There will be a public memorial service held at 2 p.m. Sunday July 21st at Kane Hall on the campus of the University of Washington.
