New year, new name, same mission!


A new year means a new start. At Alabama Arise, we’re excited to start 2019 with a new website, a new logo and a new (but familiar) name!

If you came here looking for Arise Citizens’ Policy Project (ACPP), you may be a bit confused. For years, we asked people to make tax-deductible donations to ACPP. But after years of fumbling with that hard-to-remember name, we decided to simplify. So in 2018, our board voted to change the name of ACPP to our more well-known name, Alabama Arise.

Alabama Arise is a 501(c)(3) organization, just as ACPP was previously. That means your contributions to Alabama Arise are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. (Our sister 501(c)(4) coalition, to which donations are not tax-deductible, is now called Alabama Arise Action.)

Arise’s new logo is a new take on an old concept: hopeful people joining together to lift up a vision for a better Alabama. And it’s just one example of how we’re moving into the future while staying true to our roots. Our new user-friendly website makes it easier to find what you’re looking for on an issue. And in the coming months, we plan to freshen up our print newsletters and fact sheets with new designs, too.

Our new site is a work in progress, and we welcome your feedback. If you’re looking for a resource and can’t find it, please use our search function or email  for help. Thank you for your support of Arise as we work to build a better Alabama for all!
