Put Up or Shut Up! – The REVIVE 2.0 Project in BHAM

Last Friday, I had the opportunity to attend the REVIVE 2.0 + STREET TEAM Launch Party at the Stockyard adjacent to Railroad Park alongside other community advocates, revivalists, and yay-sayers. The common trait shared among all of the attendees is an audacious belief in the infinite potential for Birmingham and a willingness to put in the vital work to make it happen for all of its citizens. Currently, the REVIVE 2.0 + STREET TEAM Project is seeking activists, advocates, business owners, creatives, and jack-of-all trades that are excited to assist with various projects in the Magic City revitalization movement for an entire year. The ongoing efforts will focus on neighborhoods in Ensley, Downtown, and East Lake.

According to REV Birmingham‘s website, ” REV is a private-public partnership that was formed in 2012 by the strategic union of Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham to revitalize places and energize business to create vibrancy in the City of Birmingham. REV is an economic development organization that stimulates business growth and improves quality of life in Birmingham’s City Center and its Neighborhood Commercial Centers.” Check out the diverse work of REV Birmingham (REV) in detail by visiting revbirmingham.org.

The REVIVE 2.0 Project is an opportunity to be a key player in “something special” for the Magic City. Today, I challenge anyone reading this to put up or shut up! Join the REVIVE 2.0 + STREET TEAM Project or another community effort that strives to build up the greater Birmingham, Alabama area by way of strategic partnerships and collective impact between all of its citizens.
