Freedom Fund Banquet 2017: THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES
Freedom Fund Banquet (FFB). Saturday October 21st, 2017 from 5:30PM to 9PM at the Salem Convention Center, Salem, OR will be our 9th Annual event. Join us. This has been a very busy and productive year for us. We have together, strengthened communications and relationships within our community with law enforcement, our elected City, County and State officials along with new collaboration with other social justice, faith based (churches) organizations, and with you our friends and neighbors.
The success of those efforts is borne out within our Salem Keizer School District, the State of Oregon (successful passage of key legislation, signed into law by our Governor- Kate Brown), the Oregon Department of Education and other places.
There are four (4) key features of our FFB
- It’s our annual fundraiser (sustaining the Branch over the course of the year)
- It’s the primary means to support our [SKSD High School Seniors] College Scholarship awards
- It’s the venue used to recognize individuals in our community who have been stalwarts of promoting Social Justice through our Pioneer Awards
- It supports the continued means to motivate and guide our SKSD Middle & High School students through the African American Youth Leadership Conference [AAYLC]
This has been a busy year. The theme of this year’s banquet is not one of frustration. The fact is we have been through difficult times before. The theme represents the recognition that as we continue to work together we continue to accomplish.
Our FFB is that occasion that lets us celebrate the old and new relationships we have formed. Welcome in new faces and enjoy a great evening.
