The Freedom Fund Gala will be live-streamed and is scheduled for Saturday, October 16, 2021. However, the Silent Auction will open for bids around October 1. This is our largest fundraiser for the year and all funds will stay in our community to support our work to bring social justice and equality for all.  

We are excited to announce our keynote speaker, Honorable Congresswoman Maxine Waters who will be introduced by Congressman Salud Carbajal.
