1999 tragedy provided a costly lesson for A Woman's Place

Eight years after her murder, Elida Rodriguez remains a call to arms for A Woman's Place. Elida was murdered by her ex-husband in 1999. She is widely known to the staff at A Woman’s Place by just her first name, even to those who joined the organization long after Elida’s death. Her photo has appeared on the organization’s brochures. Its Westside shelter is dedicated to her memory. Her case is cited during most new-hire trainings and her murder revised the way A Woman’s Place evaluates risk to victims.
