I became a KBAD member because I am a life-long Democrat, raised in a Democratic family. My parents always worked the polls, and I still remember the excitement in our home the night Kennedy was elected. My parents taught me the value of one vote and giving time and energy to the Party.
I have been an advocate/activist for Reproductive Rights since my early 30s, although I care deeply for all of the causes represented in the Democratic Platform. Lately, LBGTQ rights have become very important to me as I have gay family members and a trans grandson.
I started my activist life with NARAL Pro-Choice Texas when it was TARAL in 1980. I was an office volunteer, Board member, and staff member. I was fortunate to be able to attend several national activist trainings sponsored by NARAL.
I spent the last eight years of my professional life working for Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas before retiring due to health reasons in 2014.
I will continue to fight for the Democratic values and causes we all hold so dear until my last breath.
Your membership will help us elect progressive Democrats to ultimately turn Texas Blue!
