This grant provides sponsorship for the Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner of the Detroit Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the organization’s annual campaign to support its ongoing programs for economic sustainability, education, civic engagement, criminal justice and health in Detroit. Established in 1909, the NAACP is the country’s oldest civil rights organization and the Detroit Branch has consistently been the largest chapter since its founding in 1912.
