The inaugural Texas Conference on Civic Life is scheduled for Saturday, November 9th at UT Austin.  

The Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life recently produced the Texas Civic Health Index, the first-ever nonpartisan, state-wide evaluation of political and community engagement in Texas. The study found that Texans may be living with an undiagnosed crisis of civic health. 

Together, we will put our crisis in context with the help of nationally renowned experts and scholars and learn from other concerned citizens the innovative methods and tools they use to engage, activate, and inspire.
