Upcoming Austin Justice Coalition Events
As Sandra Bland said, “"It's time y'all. It's time. This in my hand. This telephone. This camera. It's quite powerful. Social media is powerful. We can do something with this. If we want a change, We can really, truly make it happen. We sit out here and talk about how we need the next so and so, and this and that. No you don't! . . . . God has opened my eyes and shown me, there is truly something that we can do . . . . It's time to stop knowing that "that was going to happen" and it's time to start doing something... I need you. I need y'all's help. I can't do this by myself.”
We can still hear her voice a year later. There have been others who have died in police custody, been beat and dragged like animals, or killed without justice. Join us as we remember all those lost without Justice.
Please share this event within your networks whether you can attend or not.
Do you, someone you know, or the organization you work for interact with people unable to pay court imposed fines? Please come out to our informational session on our rights regarding being to poor to pay fines. We have rights even though we may be impoverished. The Austin Justice Coaltion wants to provide the community with information about Debt Prisons. Attorneys from the Texas Fair Defense Project will provide information on options available for those who cannot afford to pay court imposed fees. If you are connected to any of the communities that may be needing this information please attend in order to share with others.
Our monthly general body meetings. All are welcomed.
The Carver Museum's free, once-a-month event called First Saturday is not to be missed. This event will celebrates a range of themes every year, and always also ties into exhibitions at the museum. It's family friendly, diverse, and the programming is intelligent.
The themes and precise schedule will be announced a few weeks before each "First Saturday," which is of course the first Saturday of every month.
Not every First Saturday event will follow the same format (heaven forbid!) but in general there's a smorgasbord of activities, including music, lectures, performances, a book club discussion and more, along the following lines.
