As an African American woman, Jennifer recognized from an early age her duty to fight for the success of disenfranchised communities. Despite their zip code, skin color, or aspirations in life, all people deserve the right to be free from oppression and live happy and prosperous lives. Because of this, Jennifer sought to educate in the classroom, build power with students and families as a lawyer and community organizer, and partner with neighbors as a school board member. She is running for re-election to continue serving her community as the Colorado House Representative for District 7.
From education funding and affordable housing to issues in social justice or civil rights, the Colorado State House is where the root of many of these issues can be resolved. Jennifer knows policies typically fail because those impacted by them are not at the table when they are made. Jennifer is a leader that collaborates with stakeholders and listens to their needs and concerns to solve real issues.
