World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims


“On November 20th, communities around the world will come together to honor loved ones lost in traffic violence and bring awareness to the need for safer streets – especially for people on foot and bike. For the first time, a coalition of people and organizations will create a space for families and friends to come together here in Tucson. All are invited to join in a brief ritual and moment of silence at sunset (5:23pm) at the Bike Church — SW corner of Granada Avenue/Main St. and Davis Street, north of E. 6th Street.

Starting at 4:45pm, we will provide yellow ribbon for people to write lost loved ones’ names on and tie onto the Bike Church. Everyone is encouraged to bring candles and yellow flowers to decorate the Bike Church with.

If you know someone who has lost a loved one through traffic violence, we invite you share this event with them. If they are not ready or able to participate, please encourage them to contact LSA and we will bring their loved one’s memory with us to the event.”
