2020 World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (WDOR)
November 15, 2020Free
BikeWalkKC invites you to join us in Kansas City’s participation in the 2020 World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (WDOR). WDOR is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year “to remember the many millions killed and injured on the world’s roads, together with their families, friends and many others who are also affected.” Further, observers use the occasion to “thank the emergency services and reflect on the tremendous burden and cost of this daily continuing disaster to families, communities, and countries, and on ways to solve it.”
Originally created and first observed by the European Federation of Road Traffic Victims, the day and its importance as a means of remembrance has spread across the world. 2020 is a milestone year for WDOR, as it will mark the 15th anniversary of its official adoption by the United Nations.
