Community fundraiser held in honor of LGBTQ activist
A fundraiser was held in Albany on September 24 to honor the life of Ahsid Hemingway-Powell.
After the LGBTQ activist was killed earlier this year, The Ahsid Hemingway-Powell Foundation is trying to make a difference in their community.
Ahsid’s mother, Jackie Hemingway explained the foundation is “…here to help the community in any way we can with small scholarships.”
The main focus of this fundraiser was to discuss the goals and history behind the organization. More fundraisers will be held in the future.
