A grassroots effort to inspire the community

Vision 2020's mission is simple: to harness the ideas and energy of volunteers, in collaboration with community organizations, to implement a shared vision for improving Austin's quality of life.

Hundreds of community members have fueled the efforts by working with businesses, non-profits, local government, and educational institutions to make tangible progress toward the identified goals.
