Mo Jenkins for Texas House District 139
Championing Equality and Progress
A Voice for Inclusivity, Education, and Affordable Healthcare
Mo Jenkins, a Black Trans-woman and proud Texas native, is known for her unwavering dedication to social justice and community empowerment.
As the Committee Director for the House Corrections Committee, she has played a pivotal role in legislative successes, including defeating school vouchers and establishing the Open Burn Pits Registry Fund.
Overcoming personal adversities, Mo, who lost her mother at 13 and experienced homelessness, has shown remarkable resilience. Her journey through the foster system and her determination led her to earn an associate degree in high school and a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi.
The decision regarding a woman’s right to choose is profoundly personal and should remain independent of State intervention. Mo will collaborate with fellow Texas House members to counter extremists and actively work towards fully reinstating a woman’s freedom of choice.
Our communities are entitled to a green, safe, and thriving environment. The environmental well-being of our neighborhoods faces jeopardy, given the threat of toxic spills and proposed hazardous concrete batch plant constructions. Mo is dedicated to spearheading the reinforcement of current environmental safeguards and advocating for the implementation of new legislation to combat this pressing crisis.
PROPERTY TAXES & HOUSING
Property taxes and rent prices have surged dramatically. The State’s persistent failure to contribute its equitable portion to education funding has placed an undue burden on local taxpayers. Mo Jenkins is committed to addressing this issue by advocating for the State to fulfill its responsibility in funding education adequately. Additionally, Mo will strive to identify and implement solutions to ensure affordable housing options for all.
