Our news partners at KARK/Fox 16 have been crusading against violent crime in Little Rock for months in the Victory Over Violence campaign.

They've gone beyond reporting about crime and response to encouragement of public commitment to make the city a safer place

To that end: A Victory Walk at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at MacArthur Park, sponsored also by Power 92. A walk around the park will end with a family-friendly event on the Arkansas Arts Center parking lot with free food, kids activities and giveaways.

More than 300 people have attended a series of neighborhood meetings since May 20 and this is the second Victory Walk. The first was in the Central High neighborhood.

All are invited to Saturday's event. More details at the Facebook page.
