Greetings,

We are honored to present, as our guest speaker at our Freedom Fund Luncheon on Sunday, November 8, 2015, Leroy Gadsden, President of the Jamaica, Queens branch of the NAACP who is also Chair of the Legal Redress/Criminal Justice, NY State Conference of NAACP Branches. He is the recipient of more than 35 different awards for community service and civil rights activities.  In July, 2014, the National NAACP presented him with the first ever coveted “Benjamin L. Hooks Keeper of the Flame Award” in appreciation and recognition of his thirty years of NAACP leadership. His most outstanding accomplishments are in the areas of police brutality, racial and discriminatory police policy issues, voter protection at the polling sites, legislative redistricting and much more!

We invite you to join our Host Committee with a donation of $50 or more to support the work of our branch. Members of the Host Committee will be acknowledged in the luncheon’s program. And, of course, we hope that you will be able to attend this very special event. Luncheon: 2:00pm and reservations are $85 per person.
