November 20th is World Day of Remembrance

Ways to Recognize World Day of Remembrance

Individual actions

  • Light a candle at home and have a moment of silence
  • Connect with friends or family who have been impacted by traffic violence
  • Share your story on social media and tag #WDoR2022 
  • Send a letter to legislators pushing them to prioritize traffic safety in your community. This could look like asking for lower speed limits on dangerous roads, changing road design, or education campaigns. 

In-person and group actions

Lay a flower on the steps of your Town or City Hall, at the site of a crash, or a meaningful location to you in honor of someone you know who has been killed or injured in a traffic crash, and invite others to do the same

Organize/attend an in-person event

If a crash has occurred in your area, hold a press conference or vigil and invite families, advocates, and others to join. Please see the World Day of Remembrance 2022 Toolkit to plan your event, and see if there’s an event happening in your community.
