Leading the Fight for LGBTQ+ Rights

Join us this Sunday as we host the Human Rights Campaign of the Deep South. Our speaker for the day will be Jordan Giddens.

The Human Rights Campaign has spent 40 years creating the most powerful movement for equality our country has ever seen. But despite this progress, our most marginalized are still suffering from violence, discrimination and fear. Our goal is to ensure that all LGBTQ+ people, and particularly those of us who are trans, people of color and HIV+, are treated as full and equal citizens within our movement, across our country and around the world.

Our speaker information: Jordan A. Giddens (he/him/his) is a native Alabamian and Senior Organizer with the Human Rights Campaign, overseeing community outreach and engagement for Alabama and Mississippi. Throughout his professional career as a political consultant, Jordan has worked in both Chambers of the Alabama State Legislature, consulted over 50 state legislators, worked with 100+ political candidates, and consulted multiple non-profits and government agencies. He graduated with both his B.S. in Finance and M.P.A. from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Public Administration and Public Policy from Tennessee State University. He has in the past served on the National Planning Committee for the Selma Bridge Crossing Jubilee and as Vice President for the The WellHouse’s Junior Board, and currently serves on UAB’s Young Alumni Council and MPA Alumni Board.
