For the Love-In, hundreds of residents signed Valentines to Mayor Hancock declaring their love for safe streets, and 43 organizations signed on as supporters of Vision Zero.

On February 17, Mayor Hancock responded by announcing his administration’s commitment to ending deaths and serious injuries on Denver’s streets. WalkDenver looks forward to working with the City and our partner organizations to develop and implement specific, data-driven strategies that will make our streets safer for all users, particularly the most vulnerable traveling on foot or by bike.
