I have worked and volunteered for two decades to advocate for underrepresented populations. As your delegate, I will use my years of community and consensus building experience to ensure our collective voice is heard.
Locally, I have served on neighborhood, super neighborhood and PTO boards, volunteered for progressive candidates up and down the ballot, and volunteered with Common Cause Texas and Election Protection to help ensure everyone can exercise their right to vote.
Professionally, I have worked tirelessly to build and nurture diverse, inclusive communities, including offering workshops at major international conventions to provide groups and organizations the tools to do the same. My previous work in higher education included becoming a certified LGBTQIA Ally, training on best practices to support first generation/low income college students, and supporting international students and scholars.
I will bring fresh energy to the 2020 National Convention. This is my second State Convention. In 2018 I spent my first Senate District and State Conventions live-blogging my experience to encourage people to get involved by helping them understand how these events work and to illustrate that the party is not a monolith. If elected as a National Delegate, I intend to once again share my experiences in real time to encourage even more people to get involved at all levels.
Thank you for your consideration.
Stay in. Be well.
