World Remembrance Day
Each year, NC Vision Zero hosts a memorial exhibit on the World Day of Remembrance to honor the lives lost
on our roads and raise awareness about preventable crashes. The annual memorial exhibit features a large
display of shoes to present the people killed on North Carolina roads. Visitors to the display have an
opportunity to pay tribute to lost loved ones by placing a yellow flower on a pair of shoes.
The next exhibit will be held on November 18, 2018 at the State Capitol in Raleigh from
Help make people aware of this serious public health issue by donating old shoes for future
exhibits. If your organization would like to partner with NC Vision Zero and host a shoe
donation box, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What will happen with the shoes after the World Day of Remembrance exhibit?
The shoes will be used for many years, travel all over North Carolina, and appear at various
traffic safty events. For example, we will use a portion of them for our upcoming
Visionaries teen driver program-to represent the number of teen driver fatalities.
If there is ever a day when we decide to stop using the shoes, we will donate the shoes
that are still wearable.
