Graduating Eastern Washington University senior and youth activist Jordan Stevenson recently appeared on the Peace Corner podcast, hosted by international organizations including the UNOY Peacebuilders, CSPPS, GPPAC and +Peace to discuss youth peacebuilding efforts.
After finishing her term as the national Policy, Advocacy and Communications Coordinator at STAND: The Student-Led Movement to End Mass Atrocities, Stevenson appeared as a guest on a podcast discussing youth peacebuilding efforts and legislation to enshrine a youth, peace and security agenda in the United States through federal legislation that Stevenson has spent the last year lobbying on via STAND. The podcast is joint effort by the +Peace Coalition based in Washington, D.C., including the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict, the Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding, and the United Network of Young Peacebuilders, all based in the Netherlands.
Stevenson has a history of being involved in youth movements and is even the incoming Country Coordinator for the United States as part of the International Youth Alliance for Family Planning. Stevenson graduated summa cum laude last weekend with a BA in International Affairs, a concentration in Global Public Policy, and minors in Spanish and Economics. She is moving to Washington, D.C. this summer with her husband, Tynan Stevenson, who is also graduating this year with a BA in Urban and Regional Planning and minors in Economics and Geography, to pursue a career in advocacy and peacebuilding.
