Austin & Undoing Racism: Human Rights Commission Meeting says
Spring is in the air and change feels possible. Even so, as the Peoples Institute teaches us, there are no quick fixes; just steps along the many roads that lead to a world rooted in justice.

Please support these two key steps at the:
Human Rights Commission Meeting
Monday, March 23 at 5:30 PM
Austin City Council Chamber, 301 W 2nd Street.

STEP ONE: Support City of Austin funded URA trainings! The HRC was impressed by the energy they saw in the room during their January meeting. They heard our recommendations for Undoing Racism Trainings and they would like to hear more about how these training have made a difference in your work, in your life, or in other cities or institutions that have taken on the work to achieve racial equity. This is an opportunity to give input and ideas for a resolution focused on city-funded Undoing Racism Trainings as an initial first step or pilot project. This will be the first item on the agenda so that the comments will be televised.

STEP TWO: Support Community Resolution on Austin Police Department cultural competency, racial profiling and use of force policies. Below are the draft ideas generated from testimony in the January Meeting. The HRC would like more discussion and input on what specifically we are asking. The HRC would like to create a working group with community members to work with them in drafting the resolution for a possible vote at the April Meeting.
Please join us and give your words of support for creating a city committed to undoing racial disparities and inequities.

Parking in the lot beneath City Hall (accessible from Lavaca Street) is free with validation. We hope you can join us! If you need a ride or child care please email us at

We hope you are all well and look forward to seeing you next Monday!

With respect,
The Undoing Racism Austin Collective
