Welcome to the Save Las Manitas and Escuelita del Alma website. Las Manitas and Escuelita del Alma are two of Austin's most well known cultural institutions. They exist to serve the needs of their customers and clients, while also ensuring a diverse downtown. Because of plans for the redevelopment of the block, Las Manitas and Escuelita del Alma are at risk of non-renewal of their leases.
The purpose of this website is to inform the public about the situation facing these businesses and to advocate for their continued, uninterrupted operation in the downtown area. Please browse the site to get more information about the businesses, the campaign to save them and upcoming fundraising events. Feel fee to sign up below to get email updates.
