NAACP Fauquier County Branch 7059 will hold its 66th Annual Freedom Fund Celebration on Friday, August 27 at 7 p.m. The event will be held virtually this year, as it was in 2020, with a Zoom link to be provided to those who make reservations. Dr. Cameron Webb, an attorney as well as medical doctor currently serving as White House Senior Policy Advisor for COVID-19 Equity, will be the keynote speaker. With friends and relatives in the Fauquier area, Dr. Webb has personal connections to the community. The theme of this year's program is Affordable Housing. The work of the Fauquier NAACP Housing Committee, co-chaired by Margaret Strano and Conway Porter, will be highlighted. Fauquier NAACP's community activity in the past year has included advocating for fair housing rights, holding public health forums and feeding those with need during the pandemic, awarding scholarships at all three local high schools, and building relationship with local law enforcement. This year, for the first time, the Branch will present a Distinguished Citizen Service Award to a deserving member of the community. The Freedom Fund event is Fauquier NAACP's yearly fundraiser. As a nonprofit, it relies on donations from individuals and businesses to fund its programs and outreach. The cost to attend is $50 for adults/$25 for students.
