Newly interested in getting more involved in what’s happening at City Hall? Then you’ve got to get yourself a copy of “A Beginner’s Guide To Local Government.” It’s fun, it explains all the basics of Austin’s local government system, and it comes with stickers. What more could you want?!
We’ve partnered up with A Functional Democracy (a local, nonpartisan civic education organization, co-founded by our Editor-In-Chief Amy Stansbury) to distribute 3,500 copies of their zine/book before the November elections.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN GET A BOOK:
Order one online here. Books are $12 and the proceeds help support the civic education work of A Functional Democracy and The Austin Common, as well as our “A Beginner’s Guide To Local Government” book donation program.
Request a book donation. If you’re part of a grassroots/nonprofit organization who would like 25 or more books donated to your group, simply fill out this form. And let us know if you’d like a Civics 101 presentation (which can be done virtually) to go along with it!
Buy our books in bulk. If you’re part of a company or large nonprofit organization with the budget to support us, we ask that you fill out this form and request a bulk book purchase. And of course, if you’d like a Civics 101 presentation to go along with it, just let us know!
