Democracy Day 2023
Democracy Day is an open forum to educate our fellow Austin residents on local, state, and federal policies that impact us all. We are happy to join in the dialogue and interact with current and future policy makers. We value your participation and civic engagement as we prepare for the upcoming election in November.
