In 2015, when legislators were led astray and filed oppressive bills that would take away parental rights and vaccine choice, Jackie Schlegel stepped up to the plate, said: “not on my watch,” and threw her hat into the political arena. In just four short years, she took a group of passionate moms and turned it into the epitome of grassroots activism, setting an unprecedented standard for the nation and even drawing worldwide attention. That fledgling group of 20 is now a political action committee and educational foundation, with over 30,000 social media followers and nearly 100,000 official members who proudly align themselves with Texans for Vaccine Choice. Her unshakeable dedication inspires all members to have a laser focus on their mission of protecting and advancing informed consent, medical privacy, and vaccine choice. Jackie is mom to three amazing teenagers.
