World Day of Remembrance

On World Day of Remembrance, Friday November 17th, Circulate San Diego will commemorate lives lost on San Diego streets in partnership with the San Diego Police Department and Councilmember Chris Ward.

Vision Zero supporters are invited to join the following speakers, who will discuss the need for safe streets in our communities:

  • Colin Parent, Interim Executive Director, Circulate San Diego
  • Councilmember Chris Ward, District 3, San Diego
  • San Diego Police Department
  • Pat Olafson, Center for the Blind¬†

After the speakers, Circulate will facilitate an interactive memorial made of bicyclist and pedestrian figures that will be adorned to commemorate lives lost. Anyone will be able to share memories, post pictures, and write down ideas for making streets safe for all. The interactive memorial is designed and provided by KTU+A Planning and Design.

As part of World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, residents in cities from Seattle to Boston will mobilize at public events to urge action to save lives on our streets through Vision Zero. Vision Zero is a strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all. Vision Zero is a growing movement based on the belief that we have the moral responsibility to keep all members of our community safe as they move about our streets, sidewalks, and bikeways.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the Kaiser Hospitals Foundation.
