The third annual Alabama CSE “Day at the Capitol” was held on May 15, 2001. More than 150 individual grassroots activists from all over the state made the trek to Montgomery to lobby their state legislators and promote the need for civil justice reform, school choice, common-sense environmental policy, affordable health care, and tax cuts.

Government goes to those who show up, and AL CSE activists showed up to make a difference in Montgomery.”
