A grassroots political activist group in west Alabama is shining a light on many other progressive organizations tomorrow.
The Kudzu Coalition of West Alabama is hosting a Spring Fling and Memorial Day celebration in downtown Tuscaloosa. Dozens of municipal and community organizations will be on hand to share their work.
Organizers say they want the Spring Fling to be an opportunity for people to find ways to get involved in their community, and for existing groups to find new ways to work together.
Mandy Fowler is the chair of the Kudzu Coalition. She says the event is a great way for advocacy organizations to get their message out and make new connections.
“We’ve invited as many as 35 different progressive organizations doing all sorts of good work in the community to host exhibitor tables and promote what they’re doing, show how they can connect with other groups and build those efforts.”
And also let those in attendance know about the services they provide. There will also be guest speakers, live music, food trucks, kids’ activities and much more. The free event will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow at Government Plaza in downtown Tuscaloosa.
