Greetings from the Alton Branch NAACP! We would like to announce our Freedom Fund Banquet coming up September 18, 2021 at Lewis & Clark Community College in the Commons building. It would be an honor to have you join us for this event.

Our 2021 banquet theme this year is: Making Lives Matter: Where do we go from here? Mayor David Goins will be our guest speaker at our banquet this year and will address the social unrest we have faced in recent years, the work being done, and the work that is yet to come. As always, we will recognize those who have made positive contributions to our community as well as some of our local youth who have decided to further their education.
