Whether you have been affected by a traffic crash as a victim or someone who has lost a friend or loved one, there is a place for you at this event. This is a supportive space to reflect, grieve, and find comfort with those who understand.

The broader community is encouraged to attend in solidarity. Your presence is deeply meaningful to victims and their loved ones. And together, our presence shines a needed light on these tragedies and the urgent need for change. 
In addition, if you’ve lost a friend or loved one to a traffic collision, we encourage you to bring a picture of your person as we honor everyone who has lost their life and call for change. 

Families for Safe Streets San Diego is a group of families who have lost their loved ones to traffic violence. Our goal is to save future lives by advocating for safer streets and driver accountability while supporting each other in the process. We are dedicated to revolutionizing our road system so that no other families have to go through the pain that we have experienced.
