Memorial Fund: Fitz Alexander Campbell Thomas organized by Durecia Moorer

As many of you know, Pastor Michelle Thomas and family are grieving the loss of their son.

Pastor Michelle has been an active part of the 'MLK I Have Dream' Family for years supporting the event in many ways as speaker, volunteer, advocate and more. She is a champion of community across Virginia. From leading the NAACP in Loudoun to conserving the rich history of African ancestry, she is the definition of advocacy. Pastor Michelle’s tenacity and advocacy reach across the aisle and across the commonwealth.

If you can, we hope you will consider supporting the Thomas family as they mourn and honor the life of their beloved son.
