So far this year, 8 people have been killed in traffic violence while walking in Portland.

Many others have been seriously injured.

The PedPDX Community Advisory Committee (CAC) has asked that we honor those who have lost their lives in traffic violence while walking on our Portland streets this year.

By honoring and acknowledging each person, the CAC wishes to center the gravity of safety and Vision Zero in the PedPDX planning process.

Please join us in remembrance, with respects to their loved ones...

In loving memory
