On Wednesday, Feb. 13, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., at Euclid Avenue United Methodist Church, 405 S. Euclid Ave. in Oak Park, the nonprofit Suburban Unity Alliance will host a town hall called "Believe Survivors: Surviving R. Kelly & Beyond."

Student leaders, survivors, teachers and others will "discuss and identify ways to combat the pervasive and systemic issues that lead to hyper-sexualization, victimization and silencing of primarily women and children," according to the event's flyer.

The town hall comes months after the documentary series, Surviving R. Kelly, aired on Lifetime.
