Texas State Organizer
Jazmin is a queer Tejana activist and 2016 alum of UT-Rio Grande Valley where she majored in Government and Sociology. Born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, she loves organizing for reproductive justice in Texas like no other. During undergrad, Jazz spent a majority of her time organizing around campaign work, the local anti-fracking movement, abortion access, comprehensive sex ed, undocumented students’ rights, LGBTQ youth safety, and HIV awareness. She was also a 2015 Reproductive Rights Activist Service Corps Intern at the Colorado Organization for Latin@ Opportunity and Reproductive Rights (COLOR). Prior to that, she was an intern with her State Representative and worked on the state gubernatorial campaign.
As someone who knows how Texas works and the importance of youth organizing, Jazz could not be more proud or excited to bring her unique experience and lens to the URGE team. In her free time Jazz can be found spending time with her little mutt, James, playing or cheering on her sisters at a soccer field, or catching up on tv.
