Democratic State Senator Jen Jordan (pronounced Jer-Dun) has spent her legal career fighting for Georgians. Jen grew up in Dodge County, the oldest child of a single mother who worked as a hairdresser and who taught her daughters the value of hard work and perseverance. As a girl, Jen learned those lessons, and benefitted from the support that Georgia offers determined students, going to Georgia Southern University on the encouragement of her public-school teachers and a HOPE scholarship, and then working her way through law school at the University of Georgia. It was in law school that Jen found her voice and came to believe deeply that the courthouse should be a place where everyone is treated equally and that the law can be a powerful tool for justice.
Jen’s small town background informs her approach to the law and public service. Put simply, she believes in helping people when they need it the most. Jen has put those beliefs into practice throughout her career: fighting to protect Georgians’ right to vote, to prevent plants from polluting Georgia’s air and water with cancer causing chemicals, and to protect children from predators and keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers. Because of her real-life experience in the courtroom and out of it, Jen knows that now, more than ever, we need an Attorney General who will take a stand and fight for the rights of each and every Georgian. That’s why Jen is running for Attorney General—to fight for the people of Georgia.
