World Day of Remembrance

Please join DC Families for Safe Streets, Alexandria Families for Safe Streets, and WABA on Sunday, November 17 for World Day of Remembrance.

The day honors those whose lives have been forever changed by traffic violence and remember those we have lost.

In DC, Families, survivors, loved ones, and allies will gather at 3:45pm at DC’s Chinatown Park (6th & I NW). We will travel together to the John A. Wilson Building downtown for a brief ceremony beginning at 5pm. We invite you to join the procession on foot or by wheels, or to arrive directly at the Wilson Building.

RSVP on Facebook.

In Alexandria, AFSS hosts a Walk of Silence at 1:00pm. Details here.

In addition to these gatherings, houses of worship across the city will include World Day of Remembrance in their services. See the map below for participating faith communities:
