To put on an event only requires a few people. As long as you're visible and making some noise, you're making a difference! All we need from you is a suggested location and some contact details, and we'll help you get people down there.
Before you start, check here to see if there is already an event happening near you. If there isn't, follow the simple steps below to get involved:
You might want to hold your event somewhere that there has been a recent RTC, for instance, where there is a big problem with antisocial driving, or outside the HQ of an organisation you feel should be doing more to ensure people's safety on the road, such as a local council. The location can be absolutely anywhere - just ensure that it will be able to accommodate your expected crowd comfortably without causing any obstructions.
Advertise your event by spreading the promotional material on local whatsapp / facebook groups and your own social media, using our national hashtags #SafeStreetsNow and #PeaceSpaceJustice
Turn up on the day at 11AM, and spend time displaying your signage.
To end the event, hold a minute's silence at midday to honour all the victims of road violence, their families and friends.
Make sure to capture images and videos of your event to share online and build the call for change across the country!
The above is simply a guide and how you choose to organise your demonstration will be determined by your local knowledge. You will be responsible for ensuring that your event is safe and legal.
Thank you for participating in #SafeStreetsNow
