We invite you to participate in our Trees of Life Figueroa Street
Vision Zero street activation project!

A 5 day, multifaceted experience that engages our community in ways that are meaningful, fun, and familiar to the neighborhood, in order to bring awareness to the traffic violence that has plagued our corridor for years, while educating on traffic safety.

Join us as we build our Trees of Life altars:

Day 1, June 21: AIR
Traditional Aztec Danza will ceremonially open our week-long altars building by cleaning each Tree of Life site.

Day 2, June 22: EARTH
Symbolically we plant trees to honor those who have died from traffic violence. Participate by writing a prayer or poem.

Day 3, June 23: FIRE
A mobile Luminaria workshop will take place along the corridor throughout the day, featuring papel picado workshops.

Day 4, June 24: WATER
Visual artists will paint the element of water at each Tree of Life. Participate by reading your poems.

Day 5, June 25: COMMUNITY
We will culminate with a sidewalk fair honoring community members while we share Vision Zero's message.
