A rally is planned in downtown Tuscaloosa this (Sunday, August 9th) afternoon to show support for local law enforcement officers.

Called "Back the Blue and Unify America," the event is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. in Government Plaza in Downtown Tuscaloosa. Attendees are encouraged to wear blue in solidarity with police and to bring American flags to show their unity with first responders.

The event's official Facebook page also indicates that this will not be an open carry event. Those who attend must follow the state's mask mandate and wear a face mask that covers both the nose and mouth.
