We're extremely close to making Democracy Dollars a reality in Austin - but we need your help.
By August 20th, the City Council has to determine which charter amendments they'll put on the November ballot.
It is absolutely vital that they understand how much public support there is for Democracy Dollars - both in Austin and around the country.
Use the tools below to let them know you support putting two charter amendments on the ballot:
The amendment to create a Democracy Dollars program.
The amendment to create an Independent Ethics Commission to administer the Democracy Dollars program.
Thank you in advance for helping to bring increased equity to Austin!
