Creating More Voters and Better Citizens


Why Bother? Engaging our Changing City

En Español aqui

Why Bother? Engaging Our Changing City  was a past event held on December 10th, 2012.

As Austin grows and thrives, our city is becoming more diverse. Latinos, African-Americans, and Asians now make up over 50% of our residents. Yet this diversity isn't reflected among citizens who vote.
