Last November, Austin Mayor Steve Adler formed a task force of local leaders to explore how to ensure equity throughout the city. Early last month, the group released their suggestions in a final report broken down into five areas: education, real estate and housing, health, finance, and criminal justice.

Join us to hear about the impetus behind the report, how it was created, what it recommends, and what's next.

Confirmed participants include:

  • Mayor Steve Adler, City of Austin
  • Dr. Colette Pierce Burnette, President and Chief Executive Officer, Huston-Tillotson University and Task Force Co-Chair
  • Brion Oaks, Chief Equity Officer, City of Austin
  • Moderator: Editorial writer and columnist Alberta Philips, Austin American-Statesman

The program will be held in the atrium on the 10th floor of the LBJ Presidential Library. The doors will open at 6 p.m. and the conversation will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Free parking will be available in the LBJ Library parking lot (#38) located at 2313 Red River Street.

Please let us know you're coming by registering online.
