Birmingham group helps in Fairfield recovery, extends efforts to Flint, MI

Storm damage in Fairfield

BIRMINGHAM, Ala (WIAT) — Days after an EF-1 tornado swept through Fairfield, “New Era Birmingham” is helping the city recover. The group’s dedication to service doesn’t stop at Fairfield – it expands across state lines.

They’re traveling to Flint, Michigan on Wednesday to help the community that has been affected by a water crisis. The group says their mission is to encourage unity.

“Our mission is to go into the communities, spread peace, love, and knowledge,” said Justin Harris, a member of the group. “Try to bring the people together, and from that, in each community, hopefully, we can make the city of Birmingham better.”

New Era Birmingham is an extension of a larger national organization that started with New Era Detroit, a similar service group to the north.
