The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) DeKalb County Branch is hosting its 63rd Annual Freedom Fund Awards Gala. The affair will be a throwback to the Harlem Nights Renaissance, taking place Saturday, November 2, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. Courtyard Atlanta Decatur Downtown/Emory, 130 Clairemont Avenue, Decatur, GA 30030. The celebration will be well attended by various community leaders and elected County officials. The President’s Nominee and Sponsor’s VIP Reception will begin at 5:30 PM.
The DeKalb Branch of the NAACP has been faithfully serving the community for 64 years with the mission of advocating for political, educational, social, and economic equality for all citizens, as well as eradicating racial injustice. NAACP DeKalb County Branch is honored to recognize the significant contributions of community leaders who represent our diverse DeKalb County population.
This year’s theme is “The Promise of America is Not the Same Promise to Us”. This year’s gala will honor eight (8) great leaders in our community who have made noteworthy achievements toward civil rights. We will also be presenting the inaugural women of the Year Award. In addition, the gala raises funds for the Branch to implement effective local and National NAACP civil rights programs with focus in the areas of education, civic engagement, economic sustainability, health, public safety, criminal justice and youth work.
