After working for many years as an attorney and community volunteer to advance equal rights – and especially in my role over the past three years as trustee and former president of the AISD school board – I feel I have the right experience and the right values to fight for what's right in the Texas House.
That will mean working for meaningful reform on education, transportation and the environment, and standing up forcefully to ultra-conservatives in the Legislature as they continue their assault on the rights of women and families.
We Must Stop Short-Changing Texas Children.
It’s time to change how we fund public education and end outdated funding formulas that cost Austin families millions every year.
We must end the epidemic of gun violence in Texas.
Public universities need the same right as private universities to opt out of campus carry, and we need more funding for mental health.
WE MUST MAINTAIN ACCESS TO WOMEN'S HEALTHCARE FACILITIES
We must stop the Republican assault on women's reproductive rights and restore funding to Planned Parenthood.
