The Peekskill NAACP Criminal Justice Committee and the Peekskill High School Black Culture Club invite all to an evening of education and discussion on the need for a Prosecutorial Conduct Commission.

Our Voices Matter! Prosecutorial Misconduct is an Illegal Act: Make it the Law in New York will raise awareness and expand an ever growing coalition of individuals and organizations pressuring the NYS Legislature to act on two pending pieces of legislation that would create a Prosecutorial Conduct Commission similar to the State's Judicial Conduct Commission.

A panel of five distinguished guests will share their expertise and personal accounts related to this issue: Dr. Leroy Gadsden, Dr. Bennett Gershman, Kenneth Chamberlain Jr., Bill Bastuk, and Jeffrey Deskovic. This panel discussion will include opportunities for questions and comments from the audience.
