Jordan Fitzgerald has been an activist and advocate for women’s and reproductive health for over 15 years. Whether in domestic violence, reproductive rights, or health care reform, Jordan has launched campaigns, developed programs, recruited and organized volunteers, designed, and built coalitions across varied issues and constituencies, all to the benefit of progressive issues. Jordan began her career in the domestic violence movement as an organizer, trainer, and victim’s advocate in Indiana.
Since joining Planned Parenthood Federation of America in 2000, Jordan has served as a field manager assisting states in grassroots organizing, strategic planning, coalition building, and policy implementation. Jordan currently serves as Associate Director for Political and Field Operations, directing national grassroots advocacy campaigns, overseeing the national political program, and launching the first ever Planned Parenthood Young Leaders Summit – bringing together over 100 young leaders from across the country to engage on key women’s health issues, moving them up the leadership ladder to become trainers and advocates themselves.

She serves as co-chair of the board for the District Alliance for Safe Housing (DASH), an organization dedicated to ensuring access to safe and sustainable refuge for victims of domestic violence through the development and management of safe housing and related services.
