It's also an occasion to commend all the law enforcement agencies at all levels, especially the first responders, for their dedication and tireless efforts to keep everyone safe.

AHRC participates in the SMART Summer Driving Campaign:
The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) joined the Dearborn Police Department, Mayor John B. O'Reilly, Dearborn Schools Superintendent, Transportation Improvement Association, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, AAA of Michigan and high school students from Dearborn High School, Edsel Ford High School, Divine Child High School and Fordson High School Students in the annual SMART summer driving campaign kick-off gathering that was held on May 15, 2019 at the Dearborn Police Department.
This collaborative effort aims to remind all drivers, especially young drivers, of the importance of smart driving to avoid death and injury of self and others. As we enter the summer season and the upcoming graduation ceremonies, this event serves as a reminder that each person's life is valued. This annual event renews all partners' unwavering commitment to advance the much needed awareness of safe driving.
According to Dearborn Police Department's release: "Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among American teenagers, killing between 5,000 and 6,000 children and young adults every year." This is tragic. These are preventable deaths.
"We salute the Dearborn Police Department for being proactive on matters of safety," said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. "The SMART campaign is a fine example of all stakeholders working together to make sure our young drivers are safe," concluded Hamad.
