During the week of World Day of Remembrance (Nov. 10-17) sermons across NYC, of all faiths, will address the public health epidemic of traffic violence, offering New Yorkers the opportunity to join the United Nations and cities around the world in memorializing those who've been killed in local neighborhoods - and calling for safer streets.
Imagine if all peoples and all religions come together as one, to pray for a day when there are no more senseless deaths and injuries due to reckless driving. All faith leaders can use their pulpits, prayers and programming to remind communities it is up to each and every one of us to make sure this happens, that we are all responsible for each other and must slow down, pay attention and support solutions that save lives.
Sermons for Safe Streets will take place the weekend before Thanksgiving, one of the deadliest holidays on US roads. These sermons can literally save lives!
