CASA Volunteer Open House & Dinner


Tue, 02/05/2013 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm


CASA of Travis County speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations in the child’s best interest. CASA volunteers come from every walk of life and share a commitment to improving children’s lives, a willingness to learn, and an open mind towards life experiences different from their own.

Media Reform Report-back


Tue, 05/10/2011 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm

As consolidation and a lack of diversity in mass media grow in the U.S., a movement of media reformers, community media-makers and activists are resisting and standing in opposition to the corporate control of how we communicate. This past April, the National Conference on Media Reform in Boston was gathering spaces to address this. Austin media activists from Austin Airwaves, Austin Indymedia, The Rag Blog, The Texas Independent and other groups will report back on the issues covered at the conferences and how it affects Austin and our use of media to pursue democracy and justice.
