Founding Board Member
As one of the original founders of ROADwomen, Houston native, Muffie Moroney has played a reputable leadership role in the rich landscape of democratic politics in Harris County and in the State, working collaboratively to form a strong network of diverse clubs, organizations, and people. She is a graduate of St. John’s School, Randolph-Macon Woman’s College, and holds a judicial degree from the University of Houston Law Center. Continuing her legal career practicing in a variety of firms and teaching at the University of Houston Law Center, she now practices law with her son Justin Renshaw, focusing on civil trial and appellate litigation.
In addition to practicing law, she has served on the Justice and Peace Council of Christ Church Cathedral, where she has been an advocate for LGBT persons and African Americans in the Episcopal Church, and for years has helped plan interfaith events with Jewish, Muslim, and Christian feminists. While a member of the board of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, she chaired the annual Roe v. Wade Luncheon. For ROADwomen, she chaired the Fork-in-the-Road Dinner honoring the families of those who worked for the passage of the Texas Hate Crimes Legislation; and she chaired the event honoring Cecilia Fire Thunder, first female President of the Oglala Sioux Tribe and founder of health clinics on the reservation for women needing family planning services after the South Dakota legislature banned most abortions in the state.
She hopes that ROADwomen’s work in Harris County leading to our successes in the November 2016 election will be perpetuated and become a model for Democrats elsewhere. Finally, she hopes that members will find involvement with ROADwomen educational, rewarding and fun.
