Let’s Build A Better Austin

Part of the mission of the African American Leadership Institute (AALI) is to build a better city for Black people to live, work, and play. With a booming job market and a world of space and opportunity here, Austin can be a premier destination for Black people to come, put down roots, and stay.

We need your help. Please take 2 minutes to share your thoughts about our city and the things you love, as well as the ways it isn’t living up to its potential as a welcoming hub for Black people.

Black Austinites are often invisible where significant city-wide initiatives are concerned, and the impact of our absence often causes unintended, but consequential, damage to the city’s image and the ability of all communities to participate in its forward progress. We now have an opportunity to use our voices to inform key decisions being made in the city.

AALI is designed to enhance civic awareness and leadership opportunities to affect the long-term action required to create equity, opportunity, and a higher quality of life for all citizens. In partnership with 212 Catalysts and Measure Austin, we are working to encourage businesses that are moving their operations to Austin to leverage their influence to make a positive impact on our society – but we need you to help us tell them where their efforts would be best directed.

Take the survey to help us build a better Black community in Austin.
