220 2nd Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104
Timed to coincide with the World Day of Remembrance, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways and Seattle’s Department of Transportation have partnered to produce a lunchtime expert panel on the importance of eliminating fatal and injurious car collisions.
WHAT: World Day of Remembrance – Reflection and Expert Panel
WHERE: The panel event will be held in a comfortable and convenient location, at Impact Hub Seattle, 220 2nd Ave S, in Pioneer Square. Look for signs directing you to the 3rd Floor Learning Studio.
WHEN: Friday, November 17, Noon – 1:30
WHO: Short, initial presentations will be made by Jim Curtin, senior transportation planner for the Seattle Department of Transportation; Gordon Padelford, executive director of Seattle Neighborhood Greenways; first responders; and city electeds. To be followed by a 40-minute expert panel, including Kelsey Mesher, Puget Sound policy manager of Cascade Bicycle Club, Sandra Maqueda of Spanish-language radio KKMO, and public health advocates.
This event couldn’t be more timely. Seattle is not making the progress we need to on our Vision Zero goals. Seattle has had 20+ crash-based fatalities in the past year — that’s 20+ too many.
If you are concerned about transportation and public health & safety in Seattle, and/or if you share the belief that people have a fundamental right to walk, bike, and drive on streets that are designed and built for safety, we hope you’ll join us.
