Jordon is Australia’s youngest senator who journeys with a disability. Prior to taking up the post of Senator for Western Australia in November 2017 Jordon dedicated his time to youth and disability advocacy and was also a student of politics at Macquarie University.
Jordon has portfolio responsibility for Disability Services, Youth, Communications and Sustainable Cities. He is currently a member of the Senate Select Committee on the Future of Work and Workers, the Joint Standing Committee on the National Broadband Network and the Joint Standing Committee on the National Disability Insurance Scheme as well as taking part in the Digital delivery inquiry, Cyberbullying inquiry, Copyright legislation inquiry and the Mobility scooters inquiry.
Deeply involved with the Greens Party from a young age, Jordon is passionate about using his time in parliament to act on climate change, reduce youth unemployment and implement a full NDIS.
“Over the course of my life I’ve learned that to be a young person with a disability in contemporary Australia is to occupy the intersection of some of our society’s most ingrained myths. At every opportunity I’ve worked hard to bust these myths and be a strong voice for the issues that matter. I will continue to do so in parliament as your Senator for Western Australia.”
