The Port Huron Branch of the NAACP is celebrating its 61st Annual Freedom Fund with a virtual event. This year’s Virtual Freedom Fund Summit theme is “The Power of Your Vote”, and the event takes place on Saturday, October 24th from 8:30 AM – 6:30 PM.
The goal of the event is to provide a forum for the public to hear from and interact with candidates running for office in St. Clair County. After an opening ceremony and chat with the Port Huron Branch President, Kevin Watkins, there is a session on collaboration among community groups, a session entitled, “The Power of the Vote”, and a speed networking opportunity.
The afternoon sessions feature panel discussions with candidates running for office and a session on understanding the voting laws and absentee voting process in Michigan.
The event is free, but the Port Huron Branch of the NAACP is collecting donations and has a goal of raising $25,000 for its Freedom Fund.
