Birmingham Civil Rights Institute COVID-19 Update
BIRMINGHAM, AL (July 20, 2020) – The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI) continues to be closed in effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. Due to the economic impact of the pandemic, BCRI has implemented measures to reduce its workforce. The current pandemic situation has impacted BCRI significantly since its closing on March 15, 2020, and as a result, staffing has been reduced in areas with direct customer contact, retail and community education – effective August 1, 2020. These decisions were difficult to make, but necessary to ensure the continued operations of the Institute.
