Safety City, 1160 Red Mile Place, is inviting families to its first Summer Safety Fair on Saturday.
The event, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., is all about giving children information that could help ssave their lives in dangerous situations. It will also feature fun activities, giveaways, and free food to the first 100 visitors.

Safety City works primarily with elementary schoolchildren to teach the importance of using seat belts, and pedestrian and bicycle safety.

Preventing Bullying & Embracing Diversity in Kentucky:

The Justice Blog

September 5th, 2012 Posted by
The following post appears courtesy of the Civil Rights Division and the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky, Kerry B. Harvey.

Last week, Thomas E. Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division spoke to all the ninth-graders in Lexington, Ky., public schools and encouraged students to prevent bullying by embracing diversity.
The event was jointly organized by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Kentucky and the Fayette County public school district to help educate students on the topics of bullying, harassment and discrimination in schools.
Approximately 700 students attended the event while around 2,400 participated from their respective schools through a live classroom feed. Students also took part in a question and answer session after the speech, with some submitting questions about bullying through emails and text messages to Assistant Attorney General Perez and others who were part of a panel.
Assistant Attorney General Perez:
“Today’s bullies are often tomorrow’s civil rights defendants. It’s important for schools to foster a learning environment where diversity isn’t just tolerated but embraced.”
 Assistant Attorney General Perez conducted a press conference for local media and student journalists.  The student journalists will compose stories on the topic for dissemination throughout their respective schools as a way to increase awareness about bullying.
 Studies show millions of students nationwide are bullied at school; including being shoved, pushed, tripped and even spit on by other students. The Anti-Defamation League found that bullying victims are more likely to engage in behaviors such as illegal drug use, dropping out of school and suicide.
As part of his visit to Lexington, Assistant Attorney General Perez also spoke about civil rights to at the University Of Kentucky College Of Law. He participated in an event attended by approximately 175 local leaders.  Audience members also heard from the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky, Kerry B. Harvey, who described the U.S. Attorney’s Office’s ongoing civil rights initiative.
 The office and its law enforcement partners have been very active in investigating and prosecuting civil rights cases.  Earlier this month, the leader of a sex trafficking ring in Kentucky, Marco Antonio Flores-Benitez, was sentenced to 15 years in prison.   When Flores-Benitez pleaded guilty to the charges in May, it marked Kentucky’s first conviction for sex trafficking.   Three other defendants were also convicted and sentenced.
At an afternoon community event, the U.S. Attorney’s Office presented awards to officers from the Lexington Division of Police who helped investigate the sex trafficking case.   In addition, two officials from the University of Kentucky received awards for assisting the USAO in its civil rights efforts.
