Most recently, Jordan was Senior Program Manager at the Center for Civic & Public Policy Improvement in Houston, Texas. She was part of a team working to change systemic inequities faced by Black individuals, families, and communities through political advocacy at the local, state, and regional levels. Jordan's policy work focused on advocating for legal representation for tenants facing evictions, increasing access to healthcare coverage for Black and Brown Houstonians, and supporting community efforts to enhance civic engagement and fight voter suppression in historically disenfranchised neighborhoods across the city.
Jordan’s work began in the movement to end gender-based violence where she supported survivors and developed strategies to prevent violence. She did this through her roles as an advocate at a domestic/sexual violence shelter, a violence prevention educator where she facilitated trainings for professional communities across the Houston area, and as the Associate Director of Rice University’s SAFE Office where she developed and facilitated interpersonal violence prevention programming and courses for students, faculty, and staff and provided counseling services to students impacted by violence on campus.
Jordan is a licensed social worker in Texas and received a Master of Social Work (Macro/Political) from the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work and a Bachelor of Science in Community Health from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
