Families for Safe Streets: Calendar

Families for Safe Streets Events

June 2020


  • TBD
    New York

    Our streets are full of life, and sadly full of death. Each day, we are all confronted with this reality, particularly those who lost loved ones or been injured in a crash. Together we will create a safe space to share personal stories, rituals and other practices as a tribute to those we have loved and lost through traffic violence, whether inspired by art, religion or other traditions.  Feel free to bring ideas and examples of your own to share, and together we will engage in a group memorial project.

  • Caring for Your Loved One (and yourself)


    TBD
    New York

    Care-giving for a loved one injured in a crash is no small job. For some, it's chosen role and for some, it's just expected. No matter the circumstance, this loving work can take a serious toll on your mind, body and spirit. It can also be incredibly rewarding. Join us for a casual evening of shared snacks and camaraderie to connect with others who give their time and energy in this way. ** Please check back for update on location and time.
