Upcoming Vigils For Kenneth Chamberlain Sr and Jonathan Maldonado



It’s that time of year again. As we gear up for the holiday, let’s not forget about the families in Westchester fighting for accountability and justice for their lost loved ones at the hands of the police. There are two vigils coming up that Black Westchester is asking all who can to come stand with the family. While it is important to stand for those who are killed by the police 1000s of miles away, like George Floyd, it is equally important to remember “Westchester Has It Own George Floyds.” Two of them were killed in November.

On Sunday, November 19th, come out and stand with the Chamberlain family at the 12th annual Commemoration of Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. Come out and stand with Kenneth Chamberlain Jr. as he calls for accountability for his father, who was killed on November 19, 2011, by the White Plains Police Department, who showed up for a wellness check.

Let’s come out strong in numbers, on Sunday, November 19th, from 3:00 PM- 4:30 PM at the White Plains Public Safety Building, located at 77 So. Lexington Avenue, White Plains, NY

And then on Wednesday, November 29th, let’s come out strong to stand with Westpac and the Westchester Coalition for Police Reform (WCPR) in support of the family of Jonathan Maldonado.

Jonathan was killed on November 29, 2017, by the Greenburgh Police Department.

There will be a prayer vigil on November 29th at 4 p.m. at Webb Field, located at 210 N. Central Avenue in Hartsdale.


Come stand with these families, show our support and keep both their names and the fight for justice and accountability alive.
