LGBTQ Community-Police Relations Forum

Posted By on Tue, Nov 19, 2013 at 8:40 AM

The Mid-South Peace & Justice Center's Community-Police Relations Forum series highlights certain segments of Memphis' population and helps to bridge the gap between the people and the police. Tonight, the focus is on the LGBTQ community.

The LGBTQ Community-Police Relations Forum will be held at Holy Trinity United Church of Christ (685 S. Highland) tonight (November 19th) from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

At the meeting, members of the LGBTQ community and their allies will be asked to share stories of interactions with local law enforcement. A handful of Memphis Police officers and Shelby County Sheriff's deputies will be on-hand. The forum is intended to break down the walls of communication between the community and the police.

For more information, check out the event's Facebook page.
