Update: Cancelled. Will be rescheduled to a TBA date.
The recent sexual assault in Greenpoint has many Greenpointers saddened, confused and scared. While the police are still conducting an investigation, reports have been made that the rape was a hate crime. Many residents have mentioned forming neighborhood watches or bike patrol programs to prevent future crimes.
Tomorrow – Wednesday June 25th, 2013 at 7:30pm at Greenpoint Church (136 Milton St) there will be a Community Forum on Sexual Violence. It is FREE, open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
Hosted by Greenpoint Church Associate Minister C.B Stewart, Council Member Stephen Levin and Brooklyn Community Gay Pride Center, the recent sexual assault in Greenpoint will be discussed as well as ways to create a community-based strategy for staying safe in Greenpoint – with a focus but not limit to the LGBTQ community here.
