The good news: Birmingham is becoming a more vibrant city every day. The bad news: Sometimes, it’s hard to keep up with the news about what’s going on. Never fear! That’s why we’re here!
We’ve compiled a list of newsletters sure to keep you in the loop of what’s happening in the ‘Ham.
Maybe we’re biased, and maybe we’re trying to get you to subscribe to our newsletter, BUT it’s seriously a good source. We put together a weekly newsletter to let you not only know about the good work that we’re doing as an organization but also what cool things YAYsayers are up to. Signing up for our newsletter is the best way to know what we’re up to and how you can help further our mission.
Speaking of what’s up in the Magic City, our friends at Bham Now give you a jumpstart to your week by telling you what you need to know about what’s cool and what you can do in the next week. Looking for a job? Bham Now also has you covered by letting you know who’s hiring in and around the city. Sign up here.
