MLK's birthday celebration, Selma screening and fundraiser
BRAVE Communities is committed to Building Relationships, Awareness, Voices, and Engagement (BRAVE) to inspire positive changes in our communities. We exist to unite students, institutions, businesses, nonprofits, and community groups by sharing our stories and voices, so we may understand, embrace, and empower each other to become a more integrated and inclusive community.
Inspired by MLK, we dream of a society guided by justice, freedom, equality, and love. Let's get together in honor of MLK's birthday for friendship, fun, and good food. We'll watch the Oscar-awarded movie, "Selma' followed by a panel discussion of how we are able to individually and collectively make Austin a more inclusive city.
