Also happening tonight in Troy: Pastor Willie Bacote and activist Alice Green will be among those at a public forum discussing community-police relations in the Collar City in the wake of the now-infamous January Kokopellis bar brawl - The Missing Link Ministry A.M.E. Zion Church is hosting the event, scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
