You can express yourself in a community forum tonight if you're worried about crime in and around your neighborhood.
Panelists of clergy, community advocates, and law enforcement and politicians will participate in a townhall meeting focused on reducing crime in and around Jackson. The forum is free to the public and will take place at the M.W. Stringer Grand Lodge in Jackson. The address is 1072 Lynch Street.
The event begins at 5:30P.M. on Tuesday. It's hosted by NAACP, the ACLU and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Wayne McDaniels, the president of Jackson's NAACP says "we're at a point where we have to stop sitting by watching crime go on, we have different criminal elements going on in the city and people just sit there and watch, don't say nothing and then the criminal goes free and it's like it's ok."
