Freedom Fund Dinner 2017

September 22, 2017, the NAACP of Milwaukee Branch held its annual Freedom Fund Dinner at the Pfister Hotel. Hupy and Abraham, S.C. was a table sponsor for the event and had several firm employees in attendance.

“Steadfast and Immovable” was this year’s theme, representing a reminder of the importance of the many battles waged over decades of collective history for the civil and human rights under the U.S. Constitution. It also acts as a tribute to men and women of color who have engaged a nation in the dialect of fairness and race consciousness.               

Jane Elliott, famous teacher and creator of the “Blue Eyes, Brown Eyes” experiment, was the keynote speaker. She discussed the role that education has in our society, especially pertaining to teaching others about differences between people and their experiences.

The NAACP of Milwaukee Branch has been making strides in the march to equality for the past 93 years, resulting in victories in civil rights, voting rights, economic advancements and education opportunities across black and brown communities locally and nationwide. Hupy and Abraham, S.C. is a longtime supporter of the NAACP and its efforts. The firm has donated more than $100,000 in scholarship assistance to area youth through the organization.
