Community Organizing - Community Organizing

The mid-1980s saw a significant growth in community organizing and resources around HIV/AIDS particularly in the Birmingham metropolitan area. Pride marches, like the first one held on June 24th, 1989 were often centered around issues related to AIDS and lack of governmental support at both the federal and state levels. During this time, organizations that continue to do work throughout the city/state began like Birmingham AIDS Outreach and AIDS Alabama.
