Dear San Diego NAACP Supporter & Friend:

Our annual Freedom Fund Dinner will be held on Friday, October 12, 2018 at the Kona Kai Resort & Spa located at 1551 Shelter Island Drive, San Diego, California. The theme for this dinner is “Our Voices, Our Engagement, Our Votes Matter!” We would appreciate your financial support of this important event to help us carry out the mission of the NAACP to “ensure, the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.” Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation’s oldest, largest and most effective civil rights organization.

The San Diego NAACP was founded in 1919. As we approach our 100th anniversary, we celebrate our recent accomplishments:

• Organizing informative community forums with candidates for public office;
• Sponsoring a successful STEM Camp in June to introduce students in our SWAG (Students With Academic Goals) career mentorship program at Bell Middle School to electrical engineering, computer science and entrepreneurship;
• Organizing an amazing ACT-SO (Afro-Academic Cultural & Scientific Olympics) competition in April that resulted in our gold medal winner, Ms. Jor’Denay Collier, competing at the national level;
• Registering voters;
• Providing input to law enforcement on issues of concern to the community including use of force and racial profiling;
• Advocating for legislation to promote affordable housing and police accountability;
• Investigating claims of discrimination in government contracting, employment, housing, and education; and
• Updating our website and increasing our use of social media to communicate with our members and the community.

As you can see, we have been busy and there is much to be done. We need your help to address the assaults on human and civil rights that we face at this time! Please make your plans today to join us on October 12, 2018. Information is attached on how to become sponsor, purchase individual tickets and place an advertisement in the program book. Thank you in advance for your generous support. Should you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected] or 619-840-8548.

Sincerely,

Dr. André J. Branch
President, San Diego NAACP
