Get involved with the Hispanic Quality of Life Initiative

If you would like to have more of a say in future areas of improvement for the Hispanic population Austin, and you’ve been meaning to get more involved, now is your chance.

The First Community Forum for the Hispanic Quality of Life Initiative will be on Education, next Tuesday, February 24, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at Stephen F. Austin High School.

From the City of Austin website:

The Hispanic/Latino Quality of Life Initiative begins with four community forums held across Austin in North, East, South and Central locations during early spring. These forums will focus on four areas or designated themes: Education, Economic/Business Development, Healthcare and Cultural Arts/History/Enrichment.

The initiative seeks to address the following questions:

  • Is the quality of life for Hispanics in Austin markedly different from the quality of life experienced by Hispanics in other cities?
  • Is the quality of life experience by Hispanics significantly different from the quality of life experienced by the rest of Austin and other demographic groups?
  • Is the City of Austin providing program services, financial assistance and other opportunities to enhance the quality of life for Hispanics?
