We are excited to announce the NAACP Las Vegas Branch 1111 will be celebrating 93 years of service to the Las Vegas community. We are the nation’s oldest and most widely recognized grassroots based civil rights organization, and we continue to fight for human and civil rights for all races and ethnicities as we head into a new century of activism, engagement, inclusion, and diversity.
We are in the process of preparing for our Annual NAACP Freedom Fund Gala. The Freedom Fund is the NAACP’s flagship event that provides funding for a variety of scholarships and important community-based events. To date, we have awarded thousands of dollars in scholarships to students attending college and vocational institutions.
Our theme this year is “Always Fighting Forward”.
Our guest speaker will be Derek Johnson, who serves as President and CEO of the NAACP — a title he has held since October of 2017. President Johnson formerly served as vice chairman of the NAACP National Board of Directors, as well as state president for the Mississippi State Conference NAACP. A longstanding member and leader of the NAACP, Mr. Johnson has helped guide the Association through a period of re-envisioning and reinvigoration.
Dinner will be held at Paris Hotel Casino, on Saturday, October 23, 2021, located at 3655 Las Vegas Blvd. Las Vegas, Nevada 89109. Our Cocktails will start at 5:00 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:00 p.m.
The NAACP is soliciting your support by being a sponsor or purchasing a table to attend the Gala.
Monies generated by the Las Vegas Branch of the NAACP will continue to provide scholarships and much needed programs and services to our most affected and disenfranchised community members throughout the Las Vegas valley.
The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic quality rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination. Your commitment to human rights for all is paramount to the organization’s efforts and success.
Thank you in advance for your support of this worthy cause. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact Tiffany Hudson at (702) 638-1300.

The Juneteenth Jubilee Breakfast was a time for all Las Vegas communities to come together, learn our country’s history, honor the past, celebrate the present, and build connections for the future. This was a celebratory breakfast and not the standard brunch. The celebration was rooted in the clothes attendees wore, the energy they brought, and the conversations were had. Attendees were encouraged to sing, dance, create new relationships with community members and build bridges towards unity. Through dynamic entertainment, food, presentations, and ceremony, attendees were fully engaged in a Juneteenth celebration.
