Save the Date! Alabama Sin Miedo, presented by our friends at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, Alabama Latino AIDS Coalition, Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice, Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama, City of Birmingham, Division of Social Justice and Racial Equity, and more!

For more info about the event:
As you may remember, the residents of our state were shaken with the passing of the anti-immigration bill HB56. Now, one decade later, we invite you to join us at BCRI for a Latinx Heritage Month celebration and commemorative reflection on the effects of the bill that continues to effect thousands of Alabamians. This two-day program is designed to engage residents from the greater Birmingham area. We hope to help them tell and archive their Alabama human and civil rights stories; find intersections with the African American Human and Civil Rights Struggle; and celebrate the sense of unity and strength that has arisen from those struggles. We’ll gather for a reception featuring great food and music on Friday, October 15th and on Saturday, October 16th, we’ll present a full day of panels and community conversations.
