Community Organizing - 10:1 Civic Academy

Community Organizing
Leaders of Temple Beth Shalom are planning a 2-day event around social justice and politics in the public square.  On Friday, May 9th, synagogue congregants plan to hear Koreena Malone relate her story about community organizing a brand-new tenants' association to better negotiate with a developer threatening to abolish her affordable housing in South Austin. On Saturday, people will gather to learn more about the City of Austin's 10:1 redistricting and what that will mean for city politics and the capacity for families to advocate on their own behalf.
