Memorial Walk for Peter Javsicas, Victims of Traffic Violence
June 29, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Vision Zero Alliance and Javsicas Family will host a walk in Center City, Philadelphia, in memory of Peter Javsicas, and all victims of traffic violence.
Mr. Javsicas, a transportation advocate and former Executive Director of PenTrans, was killed by an out-of-control driver earlier this month on JFK Boulevard.
The Bicycle Coalition and others have been working to promote already-planned changes to JFK Boulevard and Market Streets in Center City, Philadelphia, and Javsicas’ death is more evidence that something needs to be done to make those streets safer.
We have been promoting an email campaign targeting Council President Darrell Clarke to turn these plans into action now.
Please join us for this memorial walk. There will be a short speaking event at the Comcast Center, then another at Dilworth Park.
