Keep Austin Affordable

It’s time to Keep Austin Affordable

UUMC has hosted 11 phone banks (totaling over 10,000 phone calls), hosted 8 tables for college student outreach & voter registration (with delicious cookies to draw them in), raised over $4,500 in contributions and there’s still time to do more! We are in the last push as early voting is in session and the big election day approaches. Opportunities to get involved below:

Get Out The Vote
Below there is a list of the dates as well as the shift times for the upcoming GOTV push. These event shift times are EXTREMELY flexible. A representative will be at the location (St. Davids
Luteran Church on the corner of 16th and Rio Grande) all day between and during the shift times so if anyone just wants to stop by they are welcome to. Phone banking and canvassing will both be occurring during each shift. Volunteers may choose to do one or the other.

UMC believes in affordable and sustainable housing for everyone in Austin. To help ensure Austin can continue to work towards a city where all are housed, we’re working hard to help the Keep Austin Affordable Campaign. KAA is running a campaign to ensure all Austinites are educated on the bond that will be up for vote on November 5th. The bond will provide Austin with the millions of dollars needed for affordable, sustainable housing without raising any taxes. You can read more about how this works at the KAA site.
