The Texas Real Estate Advocacy & Defense Coalition (TREAD) is a bipartisan, member-based advocacy association that advocates for and defends Texas landowner rights on the state and local levels. TREAD monitors relevant issues in the Texas Legislature, such as property taxes, water rights, eminent domain and more.
They partner with professionals and organizations that advocate sound public policy and maintain a bipartisan commitment to evaluate and prioritize issues through good science and economics. TREAD is a voice of reason representing landowners at the Capitol.
Our rights are individual, but it takes a coalition to defend them. That’s where TREAD comes in!
Our speaker, Jessica Karlsruher, is TREAD’s Executive Director, with almost 20 years of experience with trade associations and nonprofit organizations. She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and began her career at the Texas Capitol. After graduation, Jessica worked at the Texas Association of Realtors® (TAR) in the Government Affairs department where she coordinated lobby days and other grassroots efforts, hosted leadership and PAC conferences and lobbied on behalf of TAR. Jessica left the Realtors® after four years of service to work in Washington, DC in state society management for the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), including board development, volunteer recruitment and state advocacy efforts. She transitioned into nonprofit fundraising, raising awareness and funds for patient advocacy organizations during the rest of her time in DC. In 2013, Jessica moved back to Texas and has served as the Director of External Relations for the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA), where she was responsible for fundraising, events, marketing and outreach. Most recently, she served as Executive Director for the Texas Association of City & County Health Officials (TACCHO) representing local health departments around the state. Jessica has been with TREAD since November of 2019 infusing a new prospective and collaborative approach bridging together the urban and rural to better address Texas landowner issues and private property rights.
