This Sunday, June 10, 2012, at 4:00pm, the Crown Heights community will be joined by Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes for an evening of policy education, awareness, and prevention.
The Town Hall Meeting will be held to discuss the dark secret that everyone knows but no one wants to talk about. Shame, secrecy, and fear around discussing sexual abuse is a harsh realty in every community on this planet, both secular (e.g. Mr. Sandusky) and religious.
Now, we have the opportunity to gather with leading legal experts in the field to discuss what policies can be implemented to combat abuse in our community specifically, and to give proper direction on what to do if G-d forbid abuse occurs. Let’s gather to come up with practical solutions that protect potential and actual victims.
