Fellow UUs, we are beyond excited that we have hired our Voting Justice Organizer, Jordan Ostrum.

Some of you may have even met Jordan at the Pride Parade, where he was already hard at work signing up voters. Here’s a bit about him:

Jordan Ostrum (he/him/his) is a nationally recognized LGBTQ advocate with a passion for voting rights. A current graduate student studying Library and Information Science, Jordan is new to Texas but a lifelong Unitarian Universalist. Jordan is excited to use the position of the Voting Justice Organizer to work with people of all walks of life in order to revitalize the use of the democratic process. When not organizing, Jordan can be found reading a good book, eating bad pizza, or snuggling a drowsy basset hound.

Jordan will be working an average of 20 hours a week through the fall election, helping your congregations to Get Out the Vote. Recent events have shown us how important getting out the vote will be this November.

Please let the voting justice volunteers at your congregation know to email Jordan at VotingJustice@firstuu.orgso he has their contact information and can begin organizing our efforts.

Please let me know if you have any questions. We’re very excited to begin working on Getting Out The Vote!

Thank you,

Rev. D. Scott Cooper

Assistant Minister of Congregational Life

First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston
