Jordan Scruggs

Born and raised in Tennessee, Jordan Scruggs is a communicator and activist specializing in reproductive justice and LGBTQ rights.

Their passion comes from being raised by Black women and men who stressed the importance of change through community action. Jordan began advocating for LGBTQ in Tennessee through an anti-bullying campaign for LGBTQ youth in schools. For this work, they were honored with MTV’s Logo Youth Trailblazer Award. Their work also expands to leadership and work involving in the past SPARK Reproductive Justice and current work with Healthy and Free Tennessee, and other local and nationwide non-profit organizations.

Today, Jordan’s writing expands to fights for comprehensive reproductive education and justice in Tennessee as well as the life of being Black, Queer, and non-binary.
