Amadou Diallo Foundation's First Annual Benefit Dinner
Thursday, February 4, 2016 •
You are cordially invited to attend the Amadou Diallo Foundation's First Annual Benefit Dinner, which will be held on Thursday, February 4, 2016, at the iconic Alhambra Ballroom, 2116 Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Blvd., in Harlem, New York.
As you may recall, Amadou Diallo was a hardworking young man from Guinea, who hoped to attend college in New York City. On February 4, 1999, he was killed by New York City police officers. Amadou's mother, Kadiatou Diallo, who demonstrated fierce advocacy during the aftermath of this Tragedy, has established a foundation in the name of her son, the Amadou Diallo Foundation. With harmonious grace, which has earned her the admiration of so many Americans, Ms. Diallo, hopes to promote public awareness regarding improving police and community relations.
The Amadou Diallo Foundation has provided college scholarships to young men and women who would not otherwise have been able to continue or complete their education.
We hope that you will join our Chairman, Mayor David N. Dinkins for the 17th Commemoration of Amadou's untimely death, at the Alhambra Ballroom on February 4, 2016 at 6:30pm.
Lets make a difference, the time to act is now!
Bruce Springsteen wrote the song “American Skin” after Amadou Diallo’s death in 1999, he rededicated the song to Trayvon Martin after his unfortunate death in 2012. Let’s not have that song dedicated to anyone else.
The Amadou Foundation's mission is to break the cycle of prejudice and racial conflict within our communities, and to promote healing. Your support and participation will help transform the dark cloud of a mother's tragedy and loss into the reconciliation and unification of communities affected by similar incidents of questionable law enforcement actions.
