Former Congresswoman Val Demings to Keynote NAACP Memphis Freedom Fund Celebration

The NAACP Memphis Branch has announced that Val Demings, former U.S. Congresswoman from Florida, will be the keynote speaker at its 48th annual Freedom Fund Celebration on Saturday, June 15, 2024.

The event, themed “Thriving Together: As One,” will be held at the Halloran Center for Performing Arts & Education in downtown Memphis.

Demings, a former social worker and police chief, served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2017 to 2023. She gained national prominence as an impeachment manager during the first impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.

“Val Demings has an incredible story to share with Memphis,” said Kermit Moore, President of the NAACP Memphis Branch. “Her life story is inspiring, from her childhood to walking and serving in the hollowed halls of Congress.”

The Freedom Fund Celebration is the NAACP Memphis Branch’s largest annual fundraiser, supporting the organization’s programs and initiatives aimed at promoting social justice and equality.

“The Honorable Val Demings has a message for our city,” Moore added. “We look forward to hearing her insights and being inspired by her words.”

Sponsorship opportunities for the event are available, and more information can be found at www.naacpmemphis.org or by calling (901) 521-1343.
