Houston • Nov. 16, 2016

Houston First turned out in numbers to support the NAACP Houston Branch Freedom Fund Advocacy & Awards Gala  on October 28 at the Hilton Americas-Houston.

The coveted Mickey Leland Humanitarian Award was presented to three individuals who have served individually and collectively as beacons of civil and social justice: Archbishop Joseph Fiorenza, Rabbi Samuel Karff and the Reverend William Lawson. Fiorenza, Karff and Lawson have for decades demonstrated NAACP’s founding mission of promoting equality, inclusion and tolerance, fully exemplifying Mickey Leland’s humanitarian spirit.
