The NAACP Milwaukee Branch will hold its annual Freedom Fund Dinner Saturday, Sept. 15 at the Hyatt Regency Downtown, 333 W. Kilbourn Ave.
A silent auction and reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. Dinner will start at 7 p.m.
The theme of this year’s affair will be: “Reform, Restore, Refocus: Your Power, Your Decision–VOTE!”
“The Milwaukee Branch of the NAACP has always relied on our community to help fund the fight for justice,” said Branch President James Hall. In 1924, a group of Milwaukeeans met and formed the Milwaukee Branch of the NAACP because of issues surrounding segregation, poor housing, lack of diverse communities, and inequality in education. These issues continue to plaque our community today.”
The NAACP is the oldest, largest and strongest civil rights organization in the United States. The organization’s principle objective is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of people of color.
