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.
