Our collective voice is power. Our community is power. And when we gather? Powerful.
The 32nd Annual Freedom Fund Event is the perfect setting to strengthen civil rights and every form of socio-economic equality. Our theme for this year is THIS IS POWER! Join us on September 23rd 2022 at 5:00 PM as we convene once again to celebrate the pursuit of civil rights.
Additionally, fundraised money will contribute to the growth of the organization and provide college scholarships to deserving students. The scholarship money that is given to students helps make going to the school of their dreams a reality. Several awards will also be given to well deserving individuals and an organization within our community.Keynote Speaker Tamika D. Mallory
