This was the third vigil for a serious car crash incident in our neighborhood in the past 6 months. We saw our board member Brian Duncan paralyzed in a a crash at Rosa Parks and Delaware on March 30. We hosted a Ride of Silence in May, paying tribute to Brian along with other people on bicycles who have been seriously injured or killed by people driving cars.

We invite neighbors to join us in taking action: slowing down as they travel through the neighborhood, taking the Vision Zero Pledge, adding a Vision Zero sign to their yard to show support for safe streets, and researching or bringing your own ideas to the table at one of our monthly meetings. We'd love to hear from you!
