Angel Carroll is a District 52 native and passionate advocate who draws from her experiences in the juvenile justice and child welfare system to inform and improve outcomes for system-involved individuals. She began her advocacy as an undergraduate testifying before the Texas Supreme Court and Texas Criminal Court of Appeals to push for the creation of a state-level commission to bridge together experts, judges, and policymakers. Her advocacy efforts were later recognized with an appointment to the Texas Juvenile Justice Advisory Board at only 23 years old. Angel has spent the last decade as a fierce advocate for local and statewide policies focusing on public education, mental health services, criminal justice reform, and civil rights. After seeing the destructive and dangerous legislation passed in the 88th State Legislature, Angel knew she had to run. Grounded in the belief that her community deserves a leader who legislates from experience, not proximity, Angel is running to be a return on the investment of the community that raised her.
