Greetings from the desk of Jonathan Hardison! I hope you're having a nice Monday. Here's a look at some of the stories we're working on for you tonight.

#FreeUAB heading back to Montgomery

Today on Birmingham's Southside some #FreeUAB supporters marched to the administration building ahead of their rally tomorrow on the statehouse steps in Montgomery. Vanessa Araiza spent the evening talking to organizers about what they hope and think they can accomplish tomorrow.

HIV/AIDS patient advocates oppose new bill

It sounds like a good idea, right? A proposed bill would make it a felony to "knowingly transmit" a sexually transmitted disease, like HIV/AIDS, to another person. Right now, it's a misdemeanor. So why is Birmingham AIDS Outreach against it? Hear from them at 10.

Fraternity shut down

At the same time as that UAB march this afternoon, halfway around the country, the University of Oklahoma football team was marching arm-in-arm to show their solidarity and the campus' unity after a video surfaced online this weekend of an on-campus fraternity yelling racial slurs on a charter bus during a frat function. Did you know that fraternity has an Alabama connection? We're delving into that tonight on Fox6 News at 10.

Join us for these stories and more starting at 9. You can watch us on air, online at MyFoxAl.com or through the WBRC News app.
