We're deeply saddened to have some truly terrible news to share. Annie's List executive director Grace Garcia passed away Monday afternoon after a fatal car accident in Waxahachie.

Garcia took over the statewide organization dedicated to electing women in Texas in early 2013. She was a San Antonio native who previously worked at the Department of State under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Garcia also co-founded an organization to help elect Latinas.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who knew Grace. She was a dynamic, engaging woman who dedicated herself to improving the lives of others.

The full statement from Annie's List is below the jump.

Annie's List Board Chair Amber Anderson Mostyn released the following statement:

"It is with a tremendous sense of loss that we announce the passing of our executive director and leader Grace Garcia, who lost her life in a car accident Monday afternoon. Another staffer was injured in the crash and is in the intensive care unit at Parkland Hospital.

"Grace's family has been notified and arrangements are pending. Her family will make an announcement regarding those arrangements in the coming days.

"Grace Garcia was the passionate, tough, visionary leader we needed at Annie's List. The best possible tribute to her life is to continue the work Grace started on behalf of Annie's List and women across Texas. Thoughts, prayers and privacy are appreciated at this time."
