The Brooklyn Heights Association (BHA) Annual Meeting at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24, at St. Francis College’s Founders Hall at 180 Remsen St. will feature Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson.

He will be speaking on “Keeping Brooklyn Safe in an Equal and Just System,” a topic that has taken on added resonance as community policing policies, sentencing reform and the exoneration of wrongfully convicted individuals are issues that confront New York City and the nation.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. DA Thompson will speak at 7 p.m., which will be followed by the business portion of the annual meeting.
