2016 Rabble Rouser Round Up says
You're invited to the 15th annual Rabble Rouser Round-Up at Austin's Saengerrunde Halle! Please join us for a celebration of the good folks taking action for justice and equality in Texas. Space is limited — so get your ticket or sponsorship today at texasobserver.org/RR2016 or by calling (512) 477-0746 ext.100.

Join the Observer community for live music by 2015 Austin Musician of the Year Gina Chavez, a bilingual Latin-folk singer/songwriter who blends the sounds of the Americas. Her most recent album, "Up.Rooted," is a collection of songs that traverse both languages and many styles. Storyteller, performer and professional rabble rouser Julie Gillis will emcee the evening's program.

This year, we're proud to honor Austin-based advocate Lauren Johnson for her work fighting for the rights of the formerly incarcerated and their families. Let's applaud those working to make Texas a better and more just place.

And we'll have a tremendous silent auction of some of the coolest goods and experiences you'll find statewide, plus downhome bites and plenty of drinks.

This is the Observer's longest-standing (and rowdiest) annual benefit, with all proceeds going to make our award-winning, hard-hitting investigative journalism and wide-ranging cultural coverage possible.

Special thanks to our sponsors!
