Join us for the 2017 World Day of Remembrance. Stand in solidarity to honor those who have been injured or killed by a road traffic crash. The vast majority of these crashes are preventable through engineering, education and enforcement. In numbers, we can recognize our loved ones, and also demand action from our elected officials. 

Please wear yellow. 

12:00 pm: Meet in Copley Square for the Memorial Bike Ride
1:30 pm: Gather at Charles St and Beacon St on the Boston Common for the Memorial Walk. 
2:00 pm: Rally on the steps of Massachusetts State House for the Memorial Vigil
3:00 pm: Head to a post-vigil gathering at CIC Boston (50 Milk St)

More info about the post-vigil gathering:
Attendees are encouraged to warm up indoors after the vigil at a reception hosted by MassBike at CIC Boston, 50 Milk Street, Boston -- the baristas at Render Coffee will be on duty. There will be ample secure and covered bike parking available near the Devonshire Street entrance. 

World Day of Remembrance is an annual, international event during which we gather as a community to reflect upon those we've lost and commit ourselves to improving our roads.
