All Together For Justice:
The Power of Community

Join us virtually or in-person at The Drive-In Theater at Carraway Village (with optional boxed dinner) to support the Chapel Hill-Carrboro NAACP’s efforts to work toward racially just and equitable communities through organized and accountable advocacy.

Meet the Keynote Speaker

Nsé Ufot

Nsé Ufot is the Chief Executive Officer of the New Georgia Project (NGP) and its affiliate, New Georgia Project Action Fund. Nsé leads both organizations with a data-informed approach and a commitment to developing tools that use technology with the goal of making it easier for every voter to engage in every election. Nsé and her team are also developing Georgia’s home-grown talent by training and organizing local activists across the state. She has dedicated her life and career to working on civil, human and workers’ rights issues and leads two organizations whose complementary aim is to strengthen Georgia’s democracy. Under her leadership, NGP has registered over 500,000 eligible Georgians to vote and has no plans of slowing down.

About the Banquet

The Freedom Fund Banquet is the Chapel Hill-Carrboro NAACP’s primary fundraiser, supporting programming, activism and outreach, as well as branch scholarships, our social-justice internship program, BIPOC economic development efforts, and voter education and advocacy.

These funds allow us to fulfill the NAACP’s mission to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.

We do that by addressing issues in our community related to education, equity, labor and economic disparities, voting rights, housing opportunity, access to health care, and environmental and criminal justice.

At the event, the branch also recognizes the recipients of its annual scholarships and awards honors to outstanding members of the branch and the Chapel Hill and Carrboro communities.
