You know those times when you see a news report of a town hall, vigil, or conference and think: “I wish I’d known about that!” Problem solved! Learn about the numerous events, protests, town halls, training, and more taking place across Alabama at one convenient Web site: Alabama Informed. It’s one of those tools that you either didn’t realize you needed or wished for, but didn’t have time to do it yourself.
We at Alabama Informed have come together to collect information regarding various political and social events to help keep you informed without having to search everywhere. We aim to provide a comprehensive listing and calendar for easy and quick access. If you want to know what’s happening in your state check here! If you are aware of an event or political cause that you do not see on our site or feel that we should be made aware of, please email us and let us know.
There’s a calendar of events, information about bills pending in the Alabama legislature, and more. It’s an invaluable resource and activist toolkit. The Elected Official tab focuses on statewide and federal offices; many of the links contain contact information.
The best part? Everyone can contribute! In fact, everyone should contribute and help this project succeed. Email your event notices to firstname.lastname@example.org
Be sure to include all the pertinent information:
- Date & Time
- Place (include the street address, not just the name of the facility)
- Admission charge (if any)
- Description of the event
- Social media links (Facebook event pages, Web sites, etc).
Note: the site loads a bit slowly, but hopefully the developers will correct that soon. Nevertheless, the short wait is worth it. Kudos to the developers of Alabama Informed!
