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.
That’s right, the City has its own bi-weekly newsletter filled with stories coming out of its communications department about newsworthy events. For the past few months, it’s also included helpful COVID-19 information. It also gives you the heads up on city services—hello, bulk trash day schedule! Get it here.
Local creatives, this one is for you. Create Birmingham marries arts and culture with business growth. And, they have a newsletter that gives you the lowdown on both. Here from the doers themselves about their journey. Or, learn about coworking spaces and events around the city. Learn more here.

Much like the Outkast song the organization is named after, Elevators has news for me, you, your mama and your cousin, too. Stay up to date on the Bham entrepreneurial ecosystem through the lens of equity and inclusion. Get updates on events and resources with the BIPOC creative in mind. Sign up here.

The Rainbow Viaduct, one of Birmingham’s oldest bridges, has been transporting people between the south and north sides of downtown for more than 130 years!
