Whether you consider yourself heavily involved in local politics or are more reluctant to participate, how you feel about your community matters.

But some people face barriers to getting involved in local politics.

In this final installment of our series Remaking America, 1A travels to Austin, Tex. to explore how we can dismantle those barriers and create a more vibrant civic culture.

What steps can you take to exercise your civic duty and make your voice heard?

This conversation is part of ourRemaking America collaboration with six public radio stations around the country, including KUT in Austin, Texas. Remaking America is funded in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
