Speakers and crowds honored Amina Ahmed, who died Saturday in a car crash at the age of 52.

In her career, Ahmed worked for the Refugee Women’s Alliance and as the executive director for Partner in Employment. She was the first female Somali-American council member in SeaTac.

“She was a symbol of community,” said Mohamud Yussuf, a longtime friend. “She was a person with integrity, with strong personality. She spoke with a sincere voice with heart.”
