Families for Safe Streets

The Street Trust is proud to support Oregon and SW Washington Families for Safe Streets!

Oregon and SW Washington Families for Safe Streets is comprised of victims of traffic violence and families whose loved ones have been killed or severely injured by aggressive or reckless driving and dangerous conditions in Oregon and SW Washington. Our local group is modeled after the original Families for Safe Streets group, banded together in New York City in 2014, with the support of Transportation Alternatives.

“We bear witness to our pain and suffering to press for the elimination of fatalities and injuries on our streets. Through our stories and advocacy, we seek cultural and physical changes on our streets and the rapid implementation of Vision Zero. We envision communities where pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles safely co-exist, and children and adults can travel freely without risk of harm – where no loss of life in traffic is acceptable.”

Oregon and SW Washington Families for Safe Streets began organizing in Fall 2015, with support and guidance from the Bicycle Transportation Alliance and Oregon Walks – though their members make all decisions regarding their initiatives.
