Conversation Corps: Talking About Affordability

  • Strange Brew Coffee Shop 5326 Manchaca Rd Austin, TX, 78745 United States (map)

What does creating an affordable Austin mean to you? What does it mean for your neighbor or the family across town? How can Austin provide more options for all households to live more affordably? This month the partnering agencies of Conversation Corps invite everyone to join an important dialogue about the various components of household affordability. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of each other’s visions for a more affordable community and themes from the conversation will inform decisions and guide collaborative partnerships between Capital Metro, AISD, and the City of Austin.

Every month, groups will meet all around town, discussing the same “issue of the month.” Conversations will take place in a variety of venues - schools, houses of worship, community centers, coffee shops and restaurants – and will last about an hour.
