Grassroots Leadership Office-Warming Party

Tuesday, March 10, 2015 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm
2301 E. Cesar Chavez St.

We kicked off 2015 by moving our Austin office back to East Cesar Chavez to accommodate our growing staff. Our beautiful new home is perfect for a HOUSE PARTY and we want to invite you to celebrate with us.

Join us for an evening of local music, dancing, home cooked treats, and fun for all ages as we celebrate our community and everyone who has supported us through the years. Bring your family and friends and help warm our house! 

*Music and Dancing with Son Armado!
*Homemade tamales by Conjunto Contigo!
*Donuts by Red Rabbit Cooperative Bakery!
*Pinata and Bouncy Castle from Jumpolin!
*Screening of Grassroots Leadership's new short documentary "No Sanctuary"
*One of Austin's favorite DJ's — DJ Chorizo Funk!

Stay tuned for more details!

Please RSVP so we know how many tamales to make! We can't wait to welcome you.


Hello! My name is Michael McCarthy. I just moved to Cesar Chavez myself (Willow St, actually) and I'm looking for opportunities to meet other individuals who are committed to social justice and community building.

I'm a musician by trade, which is what brought me to Austin just over a year ago. In the last decade I've lived, performed, and also worked outside of music as a bilingual professional in Boston, Florida and Guatemala. I have 2+ years of experience in each of the following fields: teaching, nonprofit program development, migrant worker advocacy, sales and marketing and customer service. Throughout my professional life my communication skills and ability to make personal connections have made me a valued team member in various settings.

The housewarming event today sounds like fun! I'd like to come by, meet some like-minded neighbors and learn about the work that Grassroots Leadership does, so save un tamale para mi, por fa...
