SAN DIEGO, California -- Will Walters, founder and president of San Diego-based civil rights education organization, FreeWillUSA invites the community to join him for an evening of food, friends, fun and fundraising for FreeWillUSA on Thursday, Aug. 14 from 6-8 pm at Harvey Milk's American Diner.
FreeWillUSA is a San Diego-based nonprofit organization that takes the message of equality and the power and importance of the Bill of Rights and of all the rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, religion or any minority status across the country. In the last year alone, FreeWillUSA has taken its message of equal rights from coast to coast, from the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood to the National Press Club in Washington D.C.
FreeWillUSA first made a splash by making civil rights sexy by launching the “Know Rights -or- No Rights” tattoo and visual-graphics campaign (#KRONR).
Funds raised will help FreeWillUSA develop a brand new program that brings filmmakers, artists and civil rights leaders into classrooms to help give teachers new ways to make learning about government and the Constitution more relatable and attractive to students.
“I’m so thrilled about our first Hot Summer Fun-der,” said Walters. “And grateful to Harvey Milk’s American Diner, hostess Candi Samples and all of our sponsors for making this event—let’s call it what it is, this celebration of our rights—possible. It’s going to be a great time and a fun way to support civil rights education.”
The theme for the Aug. 14 event at Harvey Milk’s American Diner is “Summer Thunder,” so participants are encouraged to wear their "sexiest" summer wear.
In addition to an opportunity drawing, there will also be a silent auction with luxury items including seven days accommodation at a high-end resort in Mazatlan. Hors d’ouevres will be served.
Donations will be accepted at the door with no minimum or maximum.
