Member of the Northern Virginia Muslim Community from the ADAMS Center, Muslim American Society and Dar Al Hijrah Islamic Center were in attendance at the NAACP Loudoun Chapter’s Freedom Fund Banquet. The NAACP has been known to have a long history in many urban areas, but not many know about the NAACP’s history of social justice and advocacy for equal rights in places like Loudoun County for over 65 years.
