A sitting member of the Fort Worth Texas school board’s Racial Equity Committee has doxxed parents by publishing their names and phone numbers on social media.

“She doxxed us. … She said, ‘Internet do your thing.’ I got 17 voicemails at my work from one person,” Kerri Rehmeyer, a Fort Worth mother who sued the school district to block a mask mandate, told Fox News. The misanthrope she was referring to is one Norma Garcia-Lopez, the co-chair of the Racial Equity Committee at Fort Worth Independent School District.

Garcia-Lopez does not serve on the school board, but her committee advises the board and she was appointed to the committee by a school board member. If that sounds like the trading of political back rubs, that’s because it is.

Rehmeyer also alleged that Garcia-Lopez had left her a profanity-laced voicemail message. She told the outlet that she was targeted by Garcia-Lopez because of her opposition to CRT being taught in schools, as well as for the fact that she and other parents joined in a lawsuit against the school district challenging the COVID-19 mask mandate.

In August, a court granted a temporary injunction against the mandate, but the school district has appealed the case to higher courts on two occasions since.

After the first injunction, Garcia-Lopez bravely took to Twitter to call out to Rehmeyer and her fellow parents, word modification and bad grammar intact.

“It’s astounding what the ‘White Privilege’ power from Tanglewood has vs a whole diverse community that cares for the well being of others,” Garcia-Lopez wrote. “These are their names: Jennifer Treger, Todd Daniel, Kerri Rehmeyer and a coward Jane Doe. Internet do your thang.”

As can be expected, Garcia-Lopez’s posts to Twitter and Facebook were made private, but Rehmeyer grabbed screenshots of the posts and provided them to Fox News.

Garcia-Lopez additionally shared the phone number and address of Treger, along with Rehmeyer’s employer, her phone number, and her work email address. When a fellow activist congratulated Garcia-Lopez on her award-winning humanitarianism in sharing the private information of others, she responded, “They definitely need to be called out.”

Rehmeyer also directed attention to posts Garcia-Lopez made that mocked TX Gov. Greg Abbott for needing a wheelchair, one in which she augmented her uncouthness with a racially-tinged attack on opponents of mask mandates.

“Y’all had no problem wearing masks when you were burning crosses on our lawns, bombing our churches, and lynching Black people,” the message read.

Warren Norred, the lawyer who represents Rehmeyer in the mask mandate lawsuit, told Fox News that he and his clients have “considered suing Garcia-Lopez for release of private information” but decided against it. “It’s kind of like complaining about defamation – you can end up making it worse.”

Norred said of Garcia-Lopez and her rabid devotion to CRT that “All of her angst and umbrage comes from the simple reality that she enjoys a strong liberal take on CRT, and she does believe this is a racist country,” Norred said.

He has urged the school board to remove Garcia-Lopez.

Garcia-Lopez reportedly did not respond to Fox News’ numerous requests for comment. The members of the school board also did not respond to Fox News’ requests for comment.
