The Seattle King County NAACP is thrilled to announce that its annual fundraising event, the Freedom Fund, will be going virtual this fall. “Freedom Funds Everyone” will run November 9 – November 13 and will raise funds to support the work of the Seattle King County NAACP.
This virtual event will feature speakers from the NAACP and the opportunity for the community to gather from behind their screens to celebrate our region and community.
“Freedom Funds Everyone” hopes to raise over $25,000 that will be invested across the chapter in areas such as healthcare, education, our discrimination hotline, education equity and inclusion programs, and the work of our Police Accountability Committee.
The events of 2020 are the culmination of over four centuries of social inequity and are a test for us all. As we look to push through this moment stronger than before and to the challenges ahead, we are certain that we will rise to the occasion only with the support of our donors.
“Freedom Funds Everyone” is dedicated in part to the beloved memories of Charleena Lyles, Shaun Fuhr, Jesse Sarey, Robert J. Lightfeather, Karla Gamez-Talavera, Wangsheng Leng, Manny Ellis, and countless others.
We look forward to this special virtual event and hope that you will join us as a donor!
The Freedom Fund is also recruiting Ambassadors and Sponsors. To get involved please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
