Behind the Bench

Tonight there will be a community forum to address the laws and legal issues that affect the urban communities and and the world. Its called ‘Behind The Bench” and will be hosted by Cornelius Ricks.  The panel will include the Hon. Paul Kerson, Esq.,( Ret.) Westchester County Criminal Court,  Hon. Jay Stuart Dankbery, Esq. (Ret.) NYC Housing Court, Asst. Attorney General Guy Mitchell, Esq. Harlem and  Rabbi Yakov D. Cohen, Esq.

The event will be held tonight August 12, 2010 from 5pm to 8pm at the Harlem Branch Library on 9 West 124th Street.

It is an event to attend, especially in light of the recent shootings that have occurred in Harlem involving the NYPD.  It is a wonderful opportunity to engage in a productive discussion about what is going on in the legal system and how it applies to People of Color and urban communities.

Stay Tuned!
