Tarsha was born and raised in Acres Homes, Greenspoint and North Forest in Houston, Texas. She raised her children here, went to school here, and has been fighting for the people of District B since the early 2000s.
Over the past 17 years, she's been a champion for fairness and equality for families and communities across Houston. Tarsha is running for City Council District B to take that fight to the next level.
Tarsha's life changed when her son was incarcerated when he was just 11 years old. She went from being a working mom to a parent-advocate. The work she's done organizing other parents resulted in practical change for kids and parents across Texas: legislative reform in how the criminal justice system treats kids.
Now Tarsha wants to get to work for you, and for Houston.
