Listening has been the key to shaping and advancing public policies that matter most to those suffering because of bad policies. We listened to continued demands to untax groceries in Alabama and realized an important victory this year. Together, we supported the passage of legislation that will reduce the state sales tax on groceries from 4% to 2% as soon as September 2024.
Alabama Arise depends on what we hear to help guide our work toward our vision of a better Alabama for all. Our online Town Hall Tuesdays will return again this year. These events are a chance for participants to hear issue updates and to share their vision for our 2024 priorities.
Please join us this summer to help identify emerging issues and inform our actions. Registration is required for these sessions. You can register for one or both sessions at the links below.
Furthermore, Arise organizers are also available to meet with your group in person. Please email me at email@example.com to schedule a listening session with your area organizer!
