Jackie is the Executive Director for Texans for Vaccine Choice. She began her journey in 2015, when she became frustrated by legislators who were trying to take away parental rights regarding vaccine choice. Schlegel wanted parents to be heard, so she created Texans for Vaccine Choice. The group is now the epitome of grassroots activism. Texans for Vaccine Choice are setting an unprecedented standard for the nation and drawing worldwide attention.
That fledgling group of 20 is now a political action committee and educational foundation, with over 30,000 social media followers as well as 12,000+ official members who proudly align themselves with Texans for Vaccine Choice.
Texans for Vaccine Choice now have local branches, core members, and team leaders impacting schools, communities and legislators.
