Joseph “Jay” Diaco and Dr. Daniel Diaco of Diaco Law, a Tampa personal injury law firm, are participating as sponsors in the Hillsborough County Branch of the NAACP Annual Freedom Fund Dinner Friday night at the Tampa Marriott Water Street. As in years past, this event will be well attended by business and community leaders as it provides a significant membership opportunity for the Hillsborough County Branch of the NAACP.
The Freedom Fund Dinner was originally started in 1956 in a time of renewed national hope and determination among black Americans, even in the face of continuing racial violence and tragedy. The National Chairman of the NAACP, Dr. Channing H. Tobias, had called for the establishment of a one million dollar fighting fund for freedom. Housing segregation, employment discrimination and police brutality against black Americans were unfortunately fixed patterns in our nation’s way of life.
The Freedom Fund keynote speaker is Derrick Johnson, the NAACP’s national president and CEO. He will be joined by political and local leaders for the annual dinner, which will focus on racial justice. Now that people can gather in-person, and after more than a year and a half apart, the significance of the event cannot be understated as like-minded individuals gather to celebrate those who exemplify the values and philosophy of the NAACP.
