Akilah Bacy is running for state representative of Texas House District 138. Akilah’s activism grew from the courtroom to her community- representing indigent clients, children seeking asylum, and combatting employment discrimination. In her West Houston community, Akilah served as an adult literacy and special class ESL instructor where she taught civics and civil rights. Akilah is unapologetic about her progressive agenda, which is fueled by her desire to see equity and justice encompass us all. Her desire began before she entered the race for the Texas Legislature and will continue with her all the way to the Capitol.
