Have you seen the giant Amazon boxes that popped up around Birmingham last week? The boxes are a creative signal of the city’s official intent to pursue the tech giant’s second headquarters location.
The boxes are the first phase of the Bring Amazon to Birmingham – or “BringAtoB” – campaign, which will engage citizens in and around the city to share why Amazon should call the Magic City home. Citizens are encouraged to participate by using the hashtag #BringAtoB and tagging @amazon on social media, telling the tech giant why Birmingham is the perfect fit for HQ2. All #BringAtoB photos and comments will be captured and displayed on BringAtoB.com.
After opening Chocolatà Artisanal Chocolatier in 2017, Kathy D’Agostino has enjoyed watching the once quiet streets of downtown Birmingham come back to life. REV sat down with her to learn more about how she landed here, where she thinks the city is heading, and why Chocolata believes in Birmingham.
Join Young Pioneers of Birmingham, in support of REV Birmingham, on Thursday, June 6 for a discussion about the Importance of Place with the Alabama Futures Fund, hosted at downtown Birmingham’s brand new Harvest Market!
