COMMUNITY FORUM THIS SUNDAY IN RESPONSE TO SEWARD PARK LIBRARY INCIDENT
Sunday, June 6, 2010
1:00pm to 2:30pm
Mazer Theater of The Educational Alliance
197 East Broadway
(This forum takes place exactly one month
from the day a 9-year old girl was sexually-assaulted inside the library.)
What? This is a public forum for families, leaders, and elected officials to discuss and raise awareness on preventing sexual assault of children.
Why is this important? Come and share your views. Learn how communities prevent and address these kinds of crimes in our community.
