Join us for the World Day of Remembrance Candlelight Vigil on November 17

Stand in solidarity for World Day of Remembrance, honoring victims of traffic crashes and their families, in Denver and around the world

The Denver Streets Partnership and the City of Denver invite you to a candlelight vigil on November 17 in Civic Center Park to honor victims of traffic crashes and their families, reaffirm our commitment to the fundamental principles of Vision Zero, and make our streets safer for everyone, together.

In 2019, already 64* people have been killed in traffic crashes. Someone loses their life every five days while traveling in our city. We simply do not have to accept fatal crashes as inevitable. Crashes are not accidents; with the right actions and commitment, they are preventable. Serious traffic crashes cause significant harm to individuals, families, and society. No one thinks that traffic deaths among friends and family are acceptable. Denver’s Vision Zero commitment and Vision Zero Action Plan is a promise and a strategy for eliminating ALL traffic fatalities and serious injuries.

Sunday, November 17, 5:00 – 6:00 pm (rain or shine)

Adopted by the United Nations in 2005, World Day Remembrance is an international day of reflection honoring victims of traffic crashes and their families, and takes place on the third Sunday in November every year.
