Shortly after the 2016 election, a group of women who were upset with the campaign’s rhetoric gathered and formed H.I.V.E. Alabama (Huddle, Inquire, Validate, Enact). Our group of over 800 women (& men!) is focused on educating ourselves on issues critical to our state in an effort to bring about positive, thoughtful, and intentional change. We strongly believe that deep down, we all want to talk to our neighbors about the things that matter most and find the common ground that makes us a community. When we listen to each other, we learn from each other.
