We Need Your Help: Two Campaigns Gearing Up!

1) Help us WIN in May 2023! Austin’s civilian oversight of police was gutted by an arbitration decision on December 28th, 2021. Most people don’t even know about this quiet Christmas season catastrophe. Equity Action is responding with a ballot initiative that strengthens and protects our civilian oversight system by enacting it as an ordinance and limiting the union’s ability to undermine it in a police contract. We gathered 33,100 signatures and our measure goes to the voters May 2023! Help us WIN this election!

2) Help us expand our budget coalition: In collaboration with more than thirty organizations, Equity Action joined in a Community Investment Budget that asked Austin City Council to increase wages for our lowest wage city workers and EMS, prevent evictions using emergency rental assistance, improve park services and youth programs and more. We had a huge impact in 2022. Help us expand the coalition for 2023! If you are a member of a group not yet signed on, tell us below!
