The upcoming City of Austin election on May 6th will feature two propositions that could change the landscape of police oversight in Austin. At issue is the power and authority of the City’s Office of Police Oversight.

Join us on April 20 for a discussion about this election. The event will feature a moderated discussion between three guest speakers, followed by a Q&A with the audience. Come to get answers to questions such as:

– What is the Office of Police Oversight?

– What would the competing propositions on the ballot actually do?

— Why should we care about this election?


Our guest speakers will include:

– Carsten Andresen, Professor of Criminal Justice at St. Edward’s University.

– Amy Stansbury, Editor-in-Chief of the news site Austin Common.

– Third speaker TBD


This event is cohosted by Braver Angels of Central Texas and the Austin Area League of Women Voters!
