Join A Functional Democracy co-founders, Amy Stansbury and Hal Wuertz, and Shoal Creek Conservancy for a crash course on all things Austin politics and ways to support parks, trails, and especially Shoal Creek! During this interactive virtual event on 8/26 at 5 pm, we’ll cover the basics of local government, how to get involved, as well as some specifics that’ll help you advocate for your local parks and trails.

The first 30 registrants will receive a copy of “A Beginner’s Guide To Local Government.” This zine is an easy-to-read (and fun) guide that walks you through all the basics about how Austin’s local government system works… and most importantly, how to get involved. Register for this event today!
