Did you enjoy the Austin NAACP banquet last year? Do you wish you went last year, but couldn't? Well, the date for the 2018 Annual Dewitty/Overton Freedom Fund Banquet has been set for December 1, 2018 at 6:00pm at the Hyatt Regency Town Lake.
The purpose and goal of this year's program is to address the significance of the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act and also examine the state of housing in Austin and America today. Access to housing is perhaps the greatest single indicator of equity and progress in America, and the City of Austin has an important history regarding fair housing laws. Accordingly, the program's keynote speaker will address the banquet's theme: "50 Years of the Fair Housing Act and its impact in Austin."
Also in attendance at this banquet will be the prestigious DeWitty/Overton Honoree, the Captain Louie White Honoree, the Founders Award, and community service awards. We will also feature our award-winning ACT-SO program and Youth Council, and hear a musical presentation and special remarks from our Branch President Nelson Linder.
The Austin NAACP Freedom Fund Banquet is an annual event designed to benefit the work of the Branch. The Austin Branch, like the 2000 branches around the nation, is operated on a volunteer basis to bring assistance to communities all across the state.
