Since the city of Los Angeles launched Vision Zero in August 2015, more than 500 people have died on our streets. From November 17th-19th, SAFE and its partners will honor those individuals and their families and will urge our elected officials to re-commit to safer streets and healthy neighborhoods.

It's time to re-center the experiences of those most immediately impacted by dangerous street design and reckless driving in Los Angeles. #InOurShoes offers and opportunity to pause and consider the hopes and dreams of those killed in traffic, the countless ways a sudden loss shatters families and communities and the courage it will take to build a safer, more human city.
