We are canceling our “Turn In, Tune In” event tomorrow (Friday October 20, 2017) AND inviting you instead to join us for Community Not Commodity’s: Surviving CodeNEXT Rally at City Hall next Tuesday, October 24, 2017, 5:30 to 8 pm. Event Details here. Or share this flier SURVIVING CodeNEXT RALLY Oct. 24, 2017.
IndyAustin’s own David Jones will be one of the speakers. David is a renter. Since 2003, he has advocated for other renters, only to see how the city’s pedal-to-the-metal growth policies continue driving modest income residents out. He’s also one of the nicest guys on the planet.
IndyAustin’s David and Linda Curtis, who was priced out of Austin in 2002, will be petitioning together at the Gay Pride Fest this Saturday, October 21, 2017, from noon to 7 pm at Fiesta Gardens. Look for The Papoose Petition Wagon. (see below)
Papoose is the model name for this Scotsman vintage trailer Indy Austin uses as its petition wagon.
Come on now – homeowners and renters alike: print out the CodeNEXT petition here and bring it to either event!
