Civilian Review Board


We exist to promote a peaceful Birmingham through equitable and humane means. We will improve the public health of residents, and address the barriers and systems that lead to trauma and all of its effects.

We are also a convener committed to bringing the best and brightest programs to all of our neighborhoods to promote uplift, re-entry and progress for all.
