(WHAS11) -- Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer wants to spread the message of compassion. Part of that idea is the Festival of Faiths, which this year ties into a visit by the Dalai Lama.
That message of compassion is getting the city some national recognition.
"People are paying attention to what's happening in Louisville, Ky. and all of us need to know that because it's real and it's something that we can use to encourage ourselves to keep going on this somewhat unusual path but extremely exciting path," Owsley Brown III, Festival of Faiths chairman, said.
Will work to implement Violence Prevention Work Group recommendations
Saying that every neighborhood in Louisville must be safe and secure, Mayor Greg Fischer today named a new director who will oversee violence prevention and reduction strategies.
Fischer appointed Anthony Smith as Director for Safe Neighborhoods, a position designed in part to implement the recommendations of the Violence Prevention Work Group. Smith will work with business and civic organizations, schools, government and police to create a holistic approach to address the root causes of violence.
From our Chairman
I can honestly say that our party and community will grow stronger the more we work together so I am asking every citizen to get involved and to please vote.
If there is anything we can do to facilitate your involvement, please let us know.
Together, let's build a brighter future."
