Genevieve Jones-Wright

District 3 Representative

Genevieve Jones-Wright

Geneviéve Jones-Wright was raised by her single mother in a low-income home in Southeast San Diego where devotion to family and self-respect was cultivated.

In keeping with her goal of “carrying the bags” of Justice Thurgood Marshall, Geneviéve earned a B.A. in mass media communications from the University of San Francisco, a J.D. from Howard Law, and an LL.M. in Trial Advocacy specializing in federal criminal defense from California Western School of Law. She proudly served San Diego County as a public defender from 2006-2019, and now serves as the founding Executive Director of Community Advocates for Just and Moral Governance (MoGo) — an impact litigation organization that works to hold Government accountable to all people, especially those who have been disenfranchised.

Geneviéve is the founder of Motivation.In.Action, a board member of the David’s Harp Foundation, and a volunteer attorney for the California Innocence Project. She is also the President of the Earl B. Gilliam Bar Association.
