This weekend, new organization PGH Walks will hold a tour of East End coffee and tea shops in an effort to engage pedestrians, drivers and bicyclists in constructive conversation.

After a number of incidents involving careless drivers last year, a new group called “Pittsburgh Walks” has formed with the focus of improving pedestrian safety and awareness.  This weekend they’re kicking off the organization with a walking tour of East End coffee and tea shops. Along the way, members will reach out to participants in an effort to start a conversation about how to make Pittsburgh a safer place to walk. Joining us to discuss the group’s mission are Pittsburgh Walks members Lilly Denhardt and Adrienne Jouver.
