In the last few years we've seen how the power of local organizing has shaped the debate for those seeking public office in Travis County, bringing the issues of immigrant detention and deportation, as well as visitation policies at the county jail to the forefront. 

Join ICE Fuera de Austin/ ICE Out of AustinGrassroots Leadership, Bend the Arc: Austin, and other community allies for a Travis County Sheriff Candidates Forum. During this event, candidates for Sheriff will be hearing from and responding to questions from those who are most impacted by the actions and decisions of the next Travis County Sheriff.

Confirmed candidates include:
Sally Hernandez
Todd Radford
Don Rios 
John Sisson
Debbie Russell

Moderated by KUT Austin's Joy Diaz

Childcare will be provided. Please email to request or call 512-499-8111.
