      Austin, TX

Please vote FOR Item 71 that will help Casa de Luz meet all city code and zoning requirements to stay open.  We do not wish to speak on this issue.

For 20+ years Casa de Luz has served delicious, organic, vegan meals. More importantly, Casa nourishes connections between the people who eat there.

As a community center, Casa offers a variety of workshops, classes, and events that are good for mind, body, and spirit.

A great place for meeting current friends, and making new friends, Casa is a hub for a wonderful social network of people.

Countless thousands of people benefit from Casa being open. Not just the people who eat and meet there, but people whose lives are touched in a positive way by the Casa community that would otherwise not exist.

Casa de Luz is good for people and good for Austin.

Right now Casa is facing issues that may cause it to shut down. They are willing to address these issues, and greatly appreciate the City of Austin working with them to resolve these issue.

Please sign this petition to send to the Austin City Council Members, Inspectors, and other officials who have the power to help Casa stay open.

      Casa is a place where I can go for a moment of reprieve and a meal that will nourish and heal my body. It is a place where community is built and maintained, and hearts can rest in the quiet.

      Casa de Luz is an oasis of peace and calm in an otherwise chaotic urban American landscape. It's also one of the unique things that helps to keep Austin weird.

      Casa has enriched Austin in too many ways to count...

      It's important to preserve these Austin landmarks! We're losing our uniqueness with every building that is torn down only to build another apartment building! Don't let it happen!

      For so many years have enjoyed the nourishing, healthy food, the friendly homestyle dining atmosphere in a beautiful setting, the health-centered programs and community activities. I meet my friends there and I make new friends there. I bring my out-of-town guests to Casa de Luz and they are amazed to find such a delightful restaurant in its serene setting, off the beaten path. Casa de Luz is one-of-a-kind in the city of Austin. It is irreplaceable for so many reasons. It's uniquely part of "Keep Austin Weird".
