FOOD ACCESS COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT MANAGER, FOOD ACCESS TEAM
Jordan is a community organizer originally from Massachusetts, and food/food issues have been a throughline of her life. They got a B.S. from the Stockbridge School of Agriculture at UMass Amherst and have worked in virtually every aspect of the food system. Since 2018 she's been rooted in the immigrant rights movement, examining the intersections of migration and food injustice. They've spent recent years organizing alongside migrant farmworkers to eliminate human rights abuses in the fields with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and is excited to dive into food access work alongside the Austin community.
From production to consumption, she's seen the depths of injustice in the food system and is passionate about changing the conditions of our industrialized food system from every angle. Jordan dreams about a food system where workers have dignified & safe working environments, food production has a positive environmental impact, and where every person has access to affordable, fresh, culturally appropriate food.
