World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims

November 12, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is an international event honoring the millions of lives lost in traffic violence around the world, and to acknowledge the suffering of the victims, families, and communities affected. Watch the conversation with Amy Cohen about honoring those we’ve lost by taking action to make our streets safer for everyone.

After her 12-year-old son Sammy was killed in 2013, Amy Cohen joined with others and helped found Families for Safe Streets (FSS). FSS confronts traffic violence by advocating for life-saving changes and providing support to those personally affected by crashes in our communities.

Read the stories of four local families affected by traffic violence:
