World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims
Standing in Solidarity and Demanding Safer Streets
World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is a global event honoring the millions of people hurt and killed in traffic crashes each year. The event also demands an end to these devastating and preventable tragedies.
San Francisco will hold its eighth annual World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims on Sunday, November 20, 2022 from 4:00PM – 5:30PM on City Hall Plaza in front of City Hall.
Whether you have been affected by a traffic crash as a victim or someone who has lost a friend or loved one, there is a place for you at this event. This is a supportive space to reflect, grieve, and find comfort with those who understand.
The broader community is encouraged to attend in solidarity. Your presence is deeply meaningful to victims and their loved ones. And together, our presence shines a needed light on these tragedies and the urgent need for change.
4:00 Gather, moment of silence, stories
4:30 Begin short memorial walk across the Plaza to the steps of City Hall
5:00 Place flowers acknowledging the lives lost since 2014, when San Francisco committed to end severe and fatal crashes
5:00 – 5:30 Candlelight vigil and songs
