Interview with Lauren Ashley Simmons

Lauren Ashley Simmons

We move over to HD146 for the next two days. This is the home of the latest problematic legislator, Rep. Shawn Thierry, who has drawn a pair of challengers after making some bad votes and troubling statements on book bans and LGBTQ+ rights. Lauren Ashley Simmons is a labor organizer and parent activist against the state takeover of HISD; here’s some news coverage about that. Raised in the Third Ward, she unexpectedly became a single mom at the age of nineteen and had to navigate all of the bureaucracy that many folks have to deal with to survive. That experience informs her activism and advocacy today. Here’s the interview:


Karthik Soora, SD15
Michelle Bonton, SD15
Molly Cook, SD15
Rep. Jarvis Johnson, SD15
Todd Litton, SD15
Beto Cardenas, SD15
Annette Ramirez, Tax Assessor
Danielle Bess, Tax Assessor
Jerry Davis, Tax Assessor
Desiree Broadnax, Tax Assessor
Claude Cummings, Tax Assessor
Amanda Edwards, CD18
Pervez Agwan, CD07
Rep. Lizzie Fletcher, CD07
Christian Menefee, Harris County Attorney
Umeka Lewis, Harris County Attorney
Kim Ogg, Harris County District Attorney
Sean Teare, Harris County District Attorney
Danny Norris, HD142
