About This Chapter

If you’re a liberty lover in Austin, Texas, you’re hardly alone! You have the chance to connect with a group of friendly, fun-loving, and passionate individuals. AF-Austin is a professional development network for those who believe in the power of personal liberty, entrepreneurship, and innovation–channeled through free markets–to promote positive social change.

AF-Austin events bring the “doers” of Austin together to network, learn from each other, discuss key issues, and ultimately collaborate to improve themselves and the city as a whole.

Sarah Silberstein

Sarah Silberstein is the acting AF-Austin chapter leader. Born and raised in Northern California, Sarah’s family moved their small business to Texas following the state’s economic downturn in 2008. Sarah attended the University of Texas at Austin and graduated with a degree in journalism. She worked as a newspaper reporter covering local government for a small Texas town before joining the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s communications team in 2017. Sarah left her role as Director of Media Relations at TPPF in 2021 to join the Associated General Contractors of Texas as Director of Marketing and Communications. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys listening to true crime podcasts and spending time with her three pups Theodore, Eleanor, and Franklin. She writes, “America’s Future serves such an important role in our increasingly divided society – to facilitate a community where individuals can be honest and inquisitive and feel respected and valued for their thoughts and opinions cannot be undervalued. I’m excited for the opportunity to foster friendships and thought-provoking conversations in the ATX!”
