It's time to end subminimum wages for people with disabilities.

As of right now in the U.S., it's legal for companies to pay people with disabilities below $7.25/hour. Jordan will propose an ordinance that ends this in the city limits of Fort Worth. People with disabilities live whole and full lives, and their paychecks should reflect the hard work they put in to making our world a better place.

For the People

I’m a lifelong resident of Fort Worth and graduate of Everman High School. I remain active in local community advocacy work in and around the Southside and Downtown areas. I teach yoga and group fitness, work in the service industry, and I am well-informed on issues faced by hourly workers and by those who rely on tipped wages to make ends meet. There are many service industry workers in district nine who continue to serve the public during the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing economic crises made worse by both the pandemic and irresponsible governing. 

Our voices must be heard in City Hall.

My policy initiatives center on economic justice, affordable housing, public transportation, and equitable access to public services such as mental healthcare and reproductive healthcare. If elected, I will propose a number of ordinances and city-wide projects focused on (1) raising the city’s minimum wage, (2) developing a fully-funded public and permanent housing initiative to eliminate houselessness, (3) and investing in a robust 21st century public transportation system.

If elected to the Fort Worth City Council, I will be a fierce advocate and leader on issues impacting the day-to-day lives of all people, particularly Black, brown, poor, working-class, and disabled people. The work has always been right in front of us, and it is past time to get it done.
