About Us

Who We Are

We are a local, non-partisan group of concerned citizens, teachers and parents that believes every kid in Austin deserves access to quality public schools. We believe we align with the vast majority of the Austin community who want school board members that put kids first.

Our Goal

Our goal is to find, support, and elect great school board leaders. We organize voters around great school board candidates and raise community awareness about challenges and successes in AISD

Our Tasks

We believe that AKF PAC exists to provide resources that would incentivize more people to become engaged with the local school board either as candidates or advocates. We like to think of Austin Kids First PAC almost as a “Kickstarter” for those interested in becoming engaged with the School Board and district leadership. Being a school board Trustee can sometimes feel like an anonymous and often overlooked job — which is why we refer to those who serve as real-life Superheroes. It is our hope to “kickstart” the good works of these people by taking on three key tasks…

Build a base of informed citizen-advocates in every AISD Trustee District

Offer education & training resources to candidates and AKF members looking for paths of effective engagement.

Use our membership and PAC board to provide direct funding through our PAC to the candidates we believe will make great school board leaders.
