Our democracy is what allows us to have our way of life with the freedoms we enjoy. But democracy is fragile. It can disappear before our very eyes if we aren’t careful. In order to protect our democracy, everyday citizens must be engaged and step up to defend it.

The League of Women Voters Austin Area is made up of volunteers right here in Central Texas who recognize that our democracy must be protected. We provide voter registration in local high schools and throughout the community. We create the Voters Guide, the go-to publication for nonpartisan information during each election. We create and present nonpartisan civics education to all potential voters in Central Texas. And we do this all for free- but we can’t do it without your support.

Join us on April 6, 2022 at Defending Democracy Dinner. When you arrive, you’ll be able to browse our silent auction and raffle with drinks available from the cash bar. During the three-course dinner, you’ll hear from our keynote speaker, Amy Stansbury of the Austin Common, as well as our President, Mari Robinson. You’ll learn about what the League has been doing to protect our democracy and our plans for 2022 and beyond. You’ll hear why this work is so important and how the League makes a critical difference. You’ll meet our award winners, both League members and members of the community, who are upholding the values of the League. And you’ll know that every dollar raised at this event is going to Defend Democracy.

So what are you waiting for? Buy a ticket or a table and know that your attendance and generosity will register and inform more voters right here in the Austin Area. Will you join us to Defend Democracy?
