Austin Interfaith news conference today
Monday, September 8, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano
Members of Austin Interfaith will hold a news conference today at 9 a.m., just before City Council’s budget session begins, in order to “address the injustice of the proposed budget.” A statement from the group explains that the proposed budget is “an immoral document that does not reflect the values and priorities of our great city.” In that same release, Austin Interfaith criticizes the amount of money spent on public safety instead of child poverty. A list of budget priorities for next year penned by the organization identified just under $130 million in funding for social service contracts and city departments. The news conference will be held at 721 Barton Springs Road.
