World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims


Please join us on the afternoon of World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims for a community memorial gathering for those impacted by traffic violence.

If you or a member of your community has been impacted by traffic violence, we welcome you to this space for a community moment of remembrance. This event is free, please RSVP.

Sunday, Nov 18, 2:00 – 3:30 pm
Impact Hub Seattle (220 2nd Ave, Pioneer Square) 3rd Floor

There are an average of 20 lives lost and 150 lives altered by major injuries each year on Seattle’s streets. But these statistics don’t share the story of a person’s life, of the way that a crash can effect a family, a friend group, and a community.

This will be a community gathering to remember and honor the friends, family, and community members, who’ve been impacted by road traffic crashes — including those whose lives have been lost, and those whose lives have been forever altered due to serious injury. This free afternoon event will include complimentary snacks and beverages, a short program, a chance to share testimonials, and a simple ceremony where individuals will be invited to add their loved ones’ names to a collaborative community sculpture.

If you are interested in learning more information about an ongoing healing circle or other support, please contact clara@seattlegreenways.org.
