Honored Victims of Traffic Violence on World Day of Remembrance

On Sunday, November 20th, LivableStreets and the Vision Zero Coalition honored victims of traffic crashes in Massachusetts as part of World Day of Remembrance. The Coalition set out a memorial display of yellow flowers near the Massachusetts State House — one blossom for each person killed or seriously injured in a traffic crash in 2022. Other advocates across the state organized vigils and actions in their towns and communities, including Springfield, Worcester, and Medford.

Bridges and buildings across the state were lit in yellow that night, as the color connected with victims of traffic violence.


Transportation and Equity Wins on the Ballot

Earlier this month, Massachusetts voters made their voices heard when question 1 (Fair Share Amendment) and question 4 (driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants) passed on the ballot!

In their own way, each ballot question is making meaningful change in Massachusetts, by improving transportation and creating safer roads for all.


LivableStreets: Slow + Steady to Beat the Bay State

LivableStreets' Staff & Board team is making its way around Massachusetts in WalkBoston's Beat the Bay State challenge. Stacy and Abby have led the team with over 100 miles logged each, and not only did Stacy spot this incredible turtle on a recent hike, Maha found an extremely rare gathering of animals in her neighborhood — some amazing wildlife photography on this team!

We've walked and run 700 of the 900 miles as of this morning; we may not have beat the Bay State, but we've certainly had fun!
