Member group representative
Darryl Jordan joined MEC’s board in 2020. He represents member groups as a senior organizer for Eastern Michigan Environmental Action Council, which empowers Detroiters to protect, preserve and value the land, air and water through environmental justice education, youth development and collaborative relationships.
With 35 years of organizing experience, Jordan has championed health & wellness; hunger & food security; union & labor rights; human rights; racial justice; community organizing and immigration.
What Jordan has fought for largely aligns with the priorities of EMEAC, but they also align with his prior work experiences: a labor organizer for SEIU, a director for Third World Coalition and an organizer for U-SNAP-BAC.
In addition to his MEC board position, Jordan also serves on the Global Grassroots Justice Alliance and Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition.
