Laquita Garcia, organizer
Laquita Garcia was born and raised in Dallas, TX, as the oldest child in a family of four. Before starting her career as an organizer, there was a chapter in her life where she had plenty to say about how the city, state and nation should be run right from her own living room sofa, but never once thought about being a part of the solution. After becoming part of TOP, she became a registered voter and voted for the first time in the 2014 Texas gubernatorial election. She now lives in San Antonio and continues to fight for change in neighborhoods across the city and the state. Laquita strives to provide every Texan with the opportunity to make real change in their life and the lives of their neighbors.
