FSS chapters across the USA and Canada are working in partnership with local grassroots street safety organizations to commemorate World Day of Remembrance with a range of in-person and virtual events including dozens of “shoe” vigils at city and state legislatures, a Twitter Town Hall, a Faith Leader Forum for our Sermons for Safe Streets initiative, a virtual support community gathering, a workshop on speed management, a story sharing initiative, and a closing virtual candle lighting ceremony.
This year, Families for Safe Streets’ WDoR focus is to confront the complacency around speeding and to call for rapid implementation of speed management solutions such as lower speed limits, automated enforcement, designing streets to manage speeds and more. Dangerous speeds, when coupled with distracted or drunk driving are particularly deadly. Traffic crash survivors and victim families demand safe cars and safe roads.
Details for all events is on our website: WDoRfss.org.
