Two events exploring our changing neighborhood tonight

As mentioned in the post below, Safe in This Place is putting on a public performance for community members tonight at 7:30pm at St. Teresa's, where they'll tackle questions of safety and security in the changing area along Franklin Ave. ILFA will be there, but I also wanted to pass along another event that's tackling similar questions tonight in Bed-Stuy, a Pratt Area Community Council Happy Hour discussion with the theme of "Neighborhood in Flux" at The Outpost (whose name alone suggests a certain vision of urban pioneering that's worth unpacking). Read on for more info (copied from their blog):
