We are pleased to honor India Piece Lee, Senior Vice President, Program at Cleveland Foundation as the 2021 Corporate Honoree.

This year’s dinner will be a true celebration of the work the NAACP has done in Greater Cleveland and nationally. We are proud of our history of fighting for civil rights, social justice, and advocating for educational and economic opportunities for the citizens of the communities we serve. Towards this end, we are pleased that MSNBC Commentator, Tiffany Cross will be our keynote speaker.

The NAACP’s mission is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination. It is clear that the role of the NAACP, as the organization of change and social justice, is more critical than ever before. This is our democracy; we must constantly be in the mindset of Advancing Equity Forward.

Join us for a reception at 4 pm, Dinner will begin promptly at 5 pm.
