Goodbye May, hello June. Let’s flip that calendar and work together to create a peaceful, prosperous new future.
Lend a Helping Hand
Take the Pledge
Do you know about The Birmingham Pledge? It was created in 1998 by local attorney Jim Rotch and stands as an important first step on the journey in addressing racial prejudice. If you’d like to take this important step toward making change happen, sign the pledge.
In an effort to help those who need it most, many Birmingham organizations are giving away free food. One is even partnering with Huffman High School alum and NFL star Marcell Dareus. Full story.
