Behind the Bham Pig Roast
This year’s Bham Pig Roast is hosted by ¡HICA!’s Junior Board. But, what’s the organization behind this amazing group all about? Here are some things to know:
- ¡HICA! originated over a decade ago when a need arose in the Birmingham metro area to support immigrant Latinos.
- As a community development and advocacy organization, ¡HICA!’s mission is to champion economic equality, civic engagement and social justice for Latino and immigrant families in Alabama.
- Some concerns they address include healthcare access, education, economic development, legal issues and community outreach.

Why you should attend the event

3. It’s a fun, family-friendly celebration. There will tons to do including live entertainment, food, activities for all ages and more.
4. You’ll get to try a brand-new beer—Lagerveza. Cahaba Brewing Company has created a special brew just for ¡HICA!’s Bham pig Roast. For every Lagerveza you order, the proceeds benefit ¡HICA.
5. You can watch the Birmingham Legion FC at 7PM… because who doesn’t want to cheer on our local all-star soccer team?
