The 22nd Annual Ozaukee County Freedom Fund Dinner will feature a stimulating panel of distinguished guests who will discuss, “Your Power, Your Decision – Vote.”
Radio host Earl Ingram will moderate this timely public discussion and lead the panelists through a series of questions that puts the spotlight on the deliberate strategies that were designed to adversely affect many citizens, making voting more difficult, more intimidating, more inconvenient, more time consuming, and in some instances, impossible, for individual citizens to vote.
Panelists will discuss their views on how the outcome of this election will affect our way of life and perhaps change the direction of our future.
Our distinguished panelists, all leaders known locally, nationally and internationally, are Dr. Howard Fuller (Marquette University Distinguished Professor, Founder/Director of the Institute for the Transformation of Learning), Claire Vanderslice (President of the Ozaukee League of Women Voters), Connie Pukaite (former mayor of Mequon), and James Causey (columnist and blogger for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).
With this panel, the audience is expected to leave inspired, informed and challenged to participate and engage in voting…Your Power, Your Decision- VOTE! Following the discussion, the audience will have an opportunity to engage with the panelists and offer their views on voting and what this election means to them.
The NAACP is committed to advocating for the protection of voting rights and minimizing the disenfranchisement of communities of people of color. The NAACP continues to fight for civil rights! The message this year is: Your One Vote Counts! It’s Your Power and Your Decision!
The 22nd Annual Ozaukee County NAACP Freedom Fund Dinner will be held Sunday evening, November 4, 2012 at the River Club of Mequon, formerly the Mequon Country Club, located at 12400 Ville du Parc Drive, Mequon, Wisconsin 53092. The evening will begin at 4PM with a social hour and a silent auction. The dinner will start at 5PM.
With the 2012 election, just two days after the dinner, each attendee should be “fired-up and ready to vote”. It is critical that everyone exercises his/her right to vote.
This year, more than ever in our history, we must let our voices be heard, and the only way to effectively carry our message is at the polls. Please visit the website at www.naacpozaukee.org for information regarding the dinner and ticket prices. Join us! “Your Power, Your Decision – Vote “
