Community Conversation: Poverty in Central Texas

  • Millennium Youth Entertainment Complex 1156 Hargrave St, Austin, Texas 78702 (map)

Please join TCDP on Chair Harding's 30th birthday, Thursday, September 14th, 2017 as we host a community conversation to discuss poverty in Central Texas. This is an important issue in Central Texas and around the country, so we are glad to host a dialogue about how we can work together to help.

The evening will be moderated by TCDP Chair Vincent Harding with talks from Hon. Mayor Steve Adler, Hon. County Judge Sarah Eckhardt, and Community Advancement Network Executive Director Hon. Raul Alvarez. We will also be hosting a panel discussion that also includes community leaders Travis County Commissioner Jeff Travillion, Travis County Treasurer Dolores Ortega Carter, ACC Trustee Sean Hassan, AISD Vice President Geronimo Rodriguez, and County Court Judge Hon. Darlene Byrne. We will also hear from some non-profits organizations that are doing amazing work in Central Texas.

This dialogue will be live streamed, and we will be using the hashtag #CCATX
