Information provided by the NAACP Chicago Far-South Suburban Branch

GLENWOOD, Ill. (May 10, 2022) – The NAACP Chicago Far-South Suburban Branch has announced that it will hold its 43rd Anniversary Freedom Fund Luncheon on Sunday, June 12, 2022. The event will run between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. at the Glenwoodie Golf Course in Glenwood, Illinois.

The event will include a luncheon and will center around a very timely topic, “Fighting Forward: Saving Our Democracy!” The keynote speaker will be Rev. Andrew D. Singleton Jr., the founding pastor of Victory Apostolic Church in Matteson, Illinois.

AC Williams will showcase a tribute to some of Motown’s greatest music. The NAACP branch will also honor several outstanding community members, including Rev. Singleton and Senior Counsel Ami Gandhi of the Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights. This year, organizers created a special sponsorship package to allow the community to support this important cause. Tickets can be purchased for $70 to support this event.

“We are extremely enthusiastic about this year’s Freedom Fund luncheon,” said branch president Gary Dingle. “The fight for voting rights, if lost, could be the end of democracy in America. So, we are educating and raising funds to make sure we protect the right to vote for all of the communities in America, including minorities, who are often the first to suffer.”
