Dogged. Determined. Efficient. Effective. That’s the the kind of work Democratic grassroots group Forward Alabama has been putting in for the last 11 months. All with the goal of getting voters and the best candidates back into the blue column in Alabama.
With NO PAID staff members, but THOUSANDS of volunteer hours, here’s a partial list of what the group has already accomplished:
- Offered candidate and volunteer training to hundreds across AL from our Yale-Campaign-School-trained instructor.
- Registered droves of young, ethnic and progressive voters at dozens of events across the state where no Democratic presence has ever before been seen (PrideFest, BluesFest, Carribean Day, and more)
- Reached almost 1 MILLION Alabama voters with POWERFUL, professionally produced messages on social media
Chances are that you’ve already seen some of FA’s messages, like these powerful videos:

Or you may have seen these popular memes that continue to generate healthy conversation on Facebook.
Like this one in response to the GOP recent declaration that we shouldn’t judge their party on “a few bad apples.”
This is one of MANY Medicaid-related memes FA created and boosted on Facebook (which produced hundred of emails and calls to Sen Del Marsh’s office in just 24 hours).
After news of the Bentley affair broke, this FA meme was so popular that it got picked up by al.com.
In the months between now and November, Forward Alabama has an aggressive goal of getting powerful messages such as these to voters, not just on social media, but on cable TV and radio. Organization leaders believe broader communication is vital to motivate—and educate—voters across the entire state on the issues that matter.
This kind of effort takes money. Please help! Donating is quick and easy on Forward Alabama’s GoFundMe fundraising campaign site.
