Hear from Vijay Dixit, co-founder and board chair of the Shreya R. Dixit Memorial Foundation, as he discusses the history of the foundation and how the incorporation of SDG 3.6 related activities will help guide its future.
This SDG Roundtable features the Shreya R. Dixit Memorial Foundation, a Minnesota advocacy group that works to increase road safety by advocating for laws, corporate policies, and individual commitments to eliminate the use of cell phones while driving. Their success – at the legislature and with major Minnesota companies – has expanded their mission to work with high school students, creating Distraction-Free Life clubs. They also incorporate the SDG 3.6 goal, reducing injuries and fatalities related to road crashes by half by 2030, into their work.
Presented in partnership with United Nations Association of Minnesota and Shreya R. Dixit Memorial Foundation.
