Vision Zero Vigil & Procession
Friday, August 28, 5-6 p.m.
Garden of Remembrance at Benaroya Hall
Corner of Second Ave & University Street
Join on Friday for the Vision Zero Vigil & Procession in honor of Sher Kung and everyone who has died or been seriously injured in the last year due to traffic violence. The event will begin with a moment of silence and bell ringing, followed by statements by family members, advocates, and city leaders, and finish with a walk and ride down Second Avenue to Occidental Park. Sponsored by Seattle Neighborhood Greenways and Cascade Bicycle Club.
All people deserve to arrive at their destinations safely, no matter how they choose to get around. And we know that our city leaders can design our streets to be safe.
That’s why we’re excited about the city’s goal of zero traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2030, and Mayor Ed Murray’s Vision Zero Action Plan to help us get there. But more must be done to fund, design and enforce safer streets.
