The World Day of Remembrance is Sunday, November 17, 2019.
Stay tuned for details about this year’s shoe memorial display.
Every year, the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims calls attention to the suffering and heartache felt by millions as a result of preventable traffic violence. Hundreds of events honoring the lives lost are hosted all over the world.
See more images from past events in our gallery.
Help make people aware of this preventable public health crisis 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 safety 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.
