Fighting for Us
As an attorney, Julie defended those who have been kicked around and pushed aside. She defended workers who were unfairly fired. She helped students who were taken advantage of by a for-profit university. And she fought for equality by making sure high school female athletes received the same treatment as male athletes. We need Julie’s commitment to what’s right in Austin.
“I’ve stared down injustice and gone toe-to-toe with the crooked and powerful, because when Texans are on the line, I’ll never back down.”
Julie is the daughter and granddaughter of teachers, and growing up she saw the transformative role education plays in students’ lives. Julie’s education, which she paid for with Pell Grants and student loans, was vital to her professional success. As a mom of two, Julie firmly believes that every Texan has the right to a quality education from early childhood through high school graduation and beyond.
