Our 2021 Theme

ATD Birmingham's 2021 theme is STRENGTH.

At the start of 2020, we were moving forward with 2020 vision. By March, much of what we had envisioned didn't seem so clear. But, we found the strength to pivot and continue the mission of ATD. Can you relate to having to find the strength to move forward in 2020?
