Jordan ParkerIllinois / Indiana State Coordinator
Jordan is the Executive Director of the grassroots campaign Bring Your Bag Chicago, which works to pass effective legislation as well as increase public awareness and community support around the issues of plastic pollution, climate change, and how they relate to disposable bag use. She was trained by Al Gore in 2013 at the Climate Reality Leadership Corps conference held in Chicago, and mentored at the Climate Reality Project’s most recent conferences in Johannesburg, South Africa and Melbourne, Australia. Jordan is thrilled to be given the opportunity to coordinate the marchers through Illinois and Indiana, and plan the biggest rally for climate action in the history of Chicago! Jordan’s passion is mobilizing a global network of climate change activists, with intermittent periods between trips to work in Chicago and reunite with her fearless German Shepherd, Kuma.
