Our democracy is what allows us to have our way of life with the freedoms we enjoy. But democracy is fragile. It can disappear before our very eyes if we aren’t careful. In order to protect our democracy, everyday citizens must be engaged and step up to defend it.
Our annual Defending Democracy Dinner is the League’s primary fundraising vehicle, powering our volunteer-driven nonprofit. The proceeds from this event—including sponsorships, auction profits, and ticket sales—fuel everything we do to ensure that voters in the Austin area have the information and resources they need to participate fully in our democracy.
The 2023 Defending Democracy Dinner will be held at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center on April 19th beginning at 6:00 p.m. This year, the event will embody our mission, as attendees will be able to participate in a voting rights advocacy activity directed toward measures currently being considered in the Texas legislature.
Buy a ticket or a table and know that your attendance and generosity will register and inform more voters right here in the Austin Area. Will you join us to Defend Democracy?
