JACKSON HEIGHTS — A community group is hosting a forum Thursday for residents to share their concerns about local policing and the changing community.
Queens Neighborhoods United will host "State of Policing in Queens" on March 5 at Queens Pride House, 76-11 37th Ave., #206, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.
The goal is to generate a discussion, especially surrounding the LGBTQ community and sex trafficking in Jackson Heights, Corona and Elmhurst, organizer Tania Mattos said.
"We're talking about misconceptions and myths about the communities, and educating the community about the situation that they go through," she said.
QNU will also have an open discussion about the proposed expansion of the 82nd Street Business Improvement District, which they have opposed.
