The NAACP Cleveland Branch is excited to celebrate 112 years of relentless advocacy and service to the Greater Cleveland community. We are honored to extend an invitation to you for our 112th Branch Anniversary Freedom Fund Dinner, scheduled for June 29, 2024, at the prestigious Hotel Cleveland (formerly the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel). This year, under the banner “Celebrating a Culture of Activism,” we underscore our deep-seated commitment to fostering social justice and activism, making it as resonant and effective as ever.

The mission of the NAACP remains steadfast: to secure political, educational, social, and economic equality for everyone, thereby eliminating race-based discrimination. In these pivotal times, the NAACP stands as a vanguard for change and social justice, underscoring the critical nature of our mission.

This year’s Freedom Fund Dinner is poised to be a memorable evening brimming with motivational speeches, exhilarating live music, and entertainment. We will also pay tribute to outstanding individuals who exemplify the ideals of justice and equality that are at the core of the NAACP’s mission.
