Qualified Immunity: An Obstacle to Justice
On October 29, 2020, join the Hudson Valley Chapter for the Henry Schwarzschild Memorial Lecture.
During recent months we have seen an uprising in this country, a call to action for those who believe that the police should be held accountable. The New York Civil Liberties Union has been in this fight for decades and we continue to push for police accountability and to transform policing as it now exists. To further our work on accountability we are presenting a panel on qualified immunity for the annual Henry Schwarzschild Memorial Lecture.
Our speakers this year are civil rights attorney William Wagstaff, Touro Law Professor Martin Schwartz, community advocate Kenneth Chamberlain Jr. and NYCLU lead policy counsel Michael Sisitzky. The panel will be moderated by civil rights attorney Mayo Bartlett.
The lecture will be held via Zoom and it is free and open to the public.
We invite you to join our Host Committee for this year’s lecture with a donation of $100 or more. Members of the Host Committee will be acknowledged during this year’s event. Thank you for your support.
