Yesterday, Mayor Woodfin made a major announcement on the formation of Birmingham's first Civilian Review Board — an independent and community-led platform for assessing police operations. To the right of the mayor is J.D. Jackson, the cousin of Bonita Carter, a young black woman who was tragically killed by an off-duty Birmingham police officer in 1979. In honor of Bonita Carter's life and others, the Civilian Review Board represents a pivotal step forward as part of the Birmingham Public Safety Task Force's ongoing efforts to strengthen trust, transparency and oversight between residents and the Birmingham Police Department. To learn more about the Civilian Review Board, please visit www.peaceandpolicy.com.

Complete the 2020 Census by Sept. 30. Visit 2020census.gov or call 844-330-2020!

Alabama ranks last for Census response.

Failure to get everyone counted will result in a loss of millions of federal dollars, meaning our state will be underfunded for a generation. We HAVE to move that needle.

Please visit 2020census.gov before Sept. 30 and be counted. Be the change you seek.
