At the Feb. 10 Love Your Neighbor Benefit and Silent Auction, you will meet Blackshear Bridge members and the Hispanic Austin Leadership Team who are helping us to build affordability and unity in Central East Austin.  Special guest speakers are Austin’s newly elected District 1 City Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison and Dr. Colette Pierce-Burnette, Huston-Tillotson University President.

Blackshear Bridge is a 501c3 community-based nonprofit founded in 2014. We are dedicated to creating and maintaining diverse and sustainable communities in Central East Austin.  This Spring, your support will help us with a crescendo of creative place-keeping in our neighborhood: (1) the painting of a large mural on the front wall of Blackshear Elementary School facing E. 11th Street to honor the life and legacy of education innovator Principal Friendly R. Rice; (2) door-knocking and surveying for community affordability outreach and engagement; and (3) the mural unveiling at a Blackshear Elementary Reunion at the school on Friday, April 26. You are invited to attend!

We need your help to accomplish these important goals.  Your generous sponsorship of Love Your Neighbor will go a long way and show leadership to others.   Your sponsorship gift of $1,000, $500, $250, or $100 will support Blackshear Bridge’s vital efforts to empower long-time neighbors in Central East Austin.
