Alabama Arise


Alabama Arise is the common name used to describe the Alabama Arise Citizens’ Policy Project, the foremost statewide organization advocating for the rights of low income people.  Major initiatives of Alabama Arise include Medicaid expansion, increasing the minimum wage, payday lending reform, expanding voting rights, tax reform, prison reform, and death penalty-reform.  Over the past two years, our UUCT congregation has supported the efforts by Alabama Arise and Tuscaloosa Citizens Against Predatory Practices (T-CAPP) to obtain reasonable rules regarding payday loans in Alabama.
