Media Advisory - From carpenters to hip hop to walking home from school: Awards celebrate community safety successes
  
Mayor David Miller will help to celebrate five winners of the Mayor’s Community Safety Awards at an evening showcase at Nathan Phillips Square. Winners from neighbourhoods across Toronto will include a group providing carpentry apprenticeships, an initiative that engages youth through song and filmmaking, and a project that makes sure children can safely walk home from school.

Date: Wednesday, May 10
Time: 4:45 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Location: Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

The awards evening, hosted by Jemeni of Flow 93.5, will also feature a self-defence demonstration by the MATS Program, and performances by Thunderbird Dance Theatre, Dezynes by the Dovercourt Dozen, and the ReMix Project Artists.

Another event feature is the Community Safety Best Practice Fair, which showcases the activities of over 35 community organizations to build and sustain safe communities across Toronto.
