Rep. Javier Mabrey (CO)

Javier dropped out of high school after his family dealt with housing instability and homelessness. He went back to school to become an advocate for families like his.

He worked his way through community college washing dishes and delivering pizzas before going to the University of Colorado Boulder where he graduated with a B.A. in Political Science and then going on to Berkeley Law School to pursue a career representing tenants facing eviction.

After law school, Javier helped found a non-profit focused on keeping Coloradans in their homes. Since 2020, Javier's organization has represented tens of thousands of Coloradans facing eviction and successfully advocated for significant policy changes to help renters in Colorado. Javier was elected to the Colorado statehouse on November 8, 2022. As a legislator he fights to pass laws in the areas of economic justice, housing justice and racial justice.
