Austinites talk civil rights

Monday, March 7, 2022 by Tai Moses

Interested in learning more about the CROWN Act, which protects against discrimination based on natural Black hair? Want to know more about tenants’ rights, eviction protections or wage theft? Or maybe you’d like to talk about the recent rise in hate crimes against communities of color, or what the city is doing to prevent homelessness. If any of these topics sparks your interest, consider joining one of the upcoming community conversations organized by the city’s Office of Civil Rights. These free meetings are intended to “share and gather information to ensure everyone feels protected in their space and understands what city resources are available to them. Through these discussions, community leaders hope to gather input about necessary protections people need to feel comfortable and not discriminated against in their work, educational, housing, business environments and in every space where we exist.” Register on Eventbrite for any of the virtual meetings:

  • March 17, 6-7:40 p.m.
  • April 13, 2-3:40 p.m.
  • May 12, 6-7:40 p.m.
  • June 2, 6-7:40 p.m.
