What better way to celebrate Earth Day than by learning how to get involved and make a difference in your local community? That’s why the Austin EcoNetwork is proud to announce that we’ll be hosting the Changemaker’s Cafe at this year’s Earth Day ATX festival.

Located in the Davage-Durden Student Union (just off Chicon Street) on Huston-Tillotson’s Campus, the Changemaker’s Cafe will feature a book sale, voter registration booth, opportunities to grab coffee with local elected officials, and advice on the best ways to write a letter to your City Council person.

Plus, we’ll also be hosting a series of special (and free) ticketed events at this year’s Changemaker’s Cafe, including:

1. Claim Your Power: Getting Involved In Local Activism – An activist meet-and-greet that allows you to connect with some of our city’s leading environmental and social justice activists
