To honor those who have lost their lives to traffic violence on Seattle’s streets, we will be putting up silhouettes all across the city.
We will meet for a Citywide Memorial on Thursday November 17 at 12:00 noon, in the lobby of City Hall. We will distribute 240 silhouettes representing people who have died in Seattle on our streets in traffic in the past 10 years, and highlight the need for safe streets in our city.
On Sunday, November 20, families and groups around Seattle will install all of the silhouettes at local events.
This a difficult time for many of us right now. World Day of Remembrance, while not a joyous event, is something that we can come together on, as well as to help raise awareness among our friends and neighbors.
World Day of Remembrance is not a political event, but it is the kind of community building and coming together process that will help us keep America great. Thank you for joining us.
Thank you to the staff at United Reprographics for manufacturing these silhouettes.
