As a candidate, what are three top priorities on your platform that you would like to tackle and what are you doing currently to work on these issues?

Natasha Harper-Madison

City Council, District 1

My organization, East Austin Advocates, helps people to mitigate challenges by way of connecting them to available and necessary resources. Our work is directly reflected in our top 3 platform priorities:


  • Addressing our affordability and transportation crises through a suite of land use reforms that realize the compact, connected vision of Imagine Austin.
  • An accessible Austin for all will address equity issues including but not limited to  access to childcare, healthcare, education and general advocacy.
  • Transcending cycles of poverty through opportunities for economic mobility including decreasing an ever widening digital divide, fair wages, access to training and creative workforce solutions.
