Dubuque 27th annual Freedom Fund Banquet


The Dubuque Branch of The NAACP invites you and your guests/family members to join us at our 27th annual Freedom Fund Banquet at The Diamond Jo Casino Banquet Hall on Saturday, November 12, 2016. A cash bar will open at 6:00 p.m. and our program will begin at 6:30 pm with dinner served at 7:00.

The purpose of the Freedom Fund Banquet is two-fold.  We want to engage Dubuque and the tri-state in a celebratory event with our branch as we continue the advancement of civil rights for all and recognize those in our community who show they believe in our cause by their actions. Monies raised from the Banquet also provide the funding for all of our scholarship opportunities throughout the year. We strongly believe that the next generation of young people provided with the necessary tools and have everyone’s full support. Your support enables us to do just that.

This Freedom Fund Banquet will be a grand celebration and continuation of a new beginning for our Dubuque branch. This year’s keynote speaker will be Senator Lena Taylor.  Senator Taylor represents the 4th Senate District of Wisconsin.  She’s a life-long resident of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and law degree from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.  Senator Taylor is the first African-American to chair the powerful Wisconsin Senate Judiciary Committee expanding the committee’s work on criminal justice reforms.
