Events focus on environment, constitutional reform, domestic violence

August 12, 2010

The next two Thursdays are filled with events that give us all an opportunity to learn more and celebrate success, starting with two opportunities to hear the views of current candidates for our state’s highest offices.

Candidates for Governor of Alabama, Dr. Robert Bentley and Ron Sparks, will address their position on protecting Alabama’s natural environment at 8 a.m. on August 19 at Wright Center on the campus of Samford University. The free event is part of Auntie Litter’s third annual Take Pride state conference and you can register here.

On the same day at 10:30 a.m. in Tuscaloosa, Bentley and Jim Folsom Jr., incumbent candidate for Lieutenant Governor, will share their views on constitutional reform as the warmup event for the noon awards luncheon of Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform. The candidate forum is free, but there is a $50 charge for the luncheon.

One week later, on Aug. 26, the Voices Against Violence Giving Circle of the Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham, a component fund of your Community Foundation, will celebrate the fifth and final year of an initiative that has done so much to affect what happens to domestic violence victims and perpetrators in our local judicial system. Contact Andrea Kirby to find out more about the reception, set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Birmingham Museum of Art and featuring U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance as speaker. A $25 donation is requested for the event, with funds going to Voices Against Violence.

Your Community Foundation is proud to be connected to all three events by our support over the years for the great organizations and their causes.
