The next step in our civic literacy project


Last summer, the San Antonio Report published “Local Government 101,” an in-depth guide to civic engagement and participation.

As co-founder Robert Rivard wrote at the time, the intent of the project was to help our readers better understand the importance of city and county government, school boards, public utilities, and the many other tax-supported organizations in their lives.

The original project, which took months to produce and drew upon the time and talents of many San Antonio Report staffers as well as local collaborators, was made possible by grant support from the Sumners Foundation in Fort Worth. Local Gov 101 was originally produced in digital form and as a printed booklet that was distributed at locations throughout the community.
