Regular gatherings known as "Walks for Peace" have become weekly routines in parts of Boston including Dorchester, Charlestown and Mattapan.

The walks, which started last year in response to gun violence, are opportunities for city residents and police to come together.

WBUR's Bruce Gellerman joined the Walk for Peace Tuesday night in East Boston.
