How to echarle ganas in 2022

Saludos! I bring you this Austin Vida newsletter with a panza llena y corazón contento after all the tamales, pozole and recalentado from the fiestas con familia.

I’m so excited about all of the Austin Vida 2022 plans this year. Check out the newsletter section below called #AustinVidaRoadtoRelaunch for monthly updates on the progress Austin Vida is making on the new site, which will feature articles focused on community news and cultura.

Also, each newsletter includes two sections below called Más Community, where we highlight local community events and volunteer opportunities and the Sí Se Puede section, which recognizes inspiring local folks pushing our comunidad forward. You can submit items for consideration in those sections by replying to this email.

Lastly, to help you kick off your new year and plan ahead, here’s your link to your free Austin Vida January Cultura Guide PDF. ¡Adelante! ?
