This Friday evening, we invite you to join the City of Seattle and community partners at the Vision Zero Vigil and Procession. The event serves as a memorial to mark the one-year anniversary of Sher Kung’s death while biking to work on 2nd Ave downtown, and to honor all those who have died or been seriously injured in traffic collisions over the past year.
Beginning at 5 p.m. family members, friends, city leaders, and safe street advocates will gather for a brief speaking program at Benaroya Hall’s Garden of Remembrance at 2nd Ave and University St, located steps from where Ms. Kung passed away. A walking and biking procession down 2nd Ave to from University St to Yesler Way, ending Occidental Park will follow.
The event is part of Vision Zero – Seattle’s plan to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030. We can, must, and will do more to make Seattle’s streets safer for everyone.
We hope to see you there.
