Will you join us at World Day of Remembrance for Traffic Victims on November 15?
Do you want to remember a friend or loved one? Or are you the survivor of a traffic crash?
San Francisco will hold its sixth annual World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims on Sunday, November 15, 2020 from 3:00 – 4:00PM on the steps of City Hall.
This event honors the people hurt and killed in traffic crashes, and also demands an end to these devastating and preventable tragedies. World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is a needed space to grieve, to remember, and to lift up stories that must be heard.
If you are someone who has been personally affected by a traffic crash, I invite you to participate in this limited attendance event. Whether you want to remember a friend or loved one, or you are a survivor of a crash, there is a place for you at World Day of Remembrance.
At this year’s event, we will create a temporary memorial where attendees can add flowers and other items. City leaders and elected officials are being invited to attend and read the names of the nearly 200 people who have been killed in traffic crashes since 2014. Yellow lights will shine on City Hall starting at dusk.
Please sign up so we can confirm your attendance and share more details about how you can participate. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email.
If you are someone who wants to stand in solidarity with victims of traffic violence, here’s how.
