Jordan Lucas

Jordan's Bio

Hello, my name is Jordan Lucas. I’m a senior at Neptune High School in Neptune, NJ. I wanted to be involved with another organization that addresses important issues of today. Voting rights are huge right now. I never thought in my lifetime that I would witness such archaic ideologies surrounding voter suppression. 

I want to be on this advisory board to speak out against ignorance and to educate people my age and beyond about the importance of making their vote count in order to select leaders who share their ideas and support their interests.
