Jordan Hall was born and raised on the west side of Baltimore City. He moved to Brooklyn, NY in 2016 to change the narrative within the justice system and leave his footprint.
Jordan received his Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice from Virginia State University. There he was very involved, from becoming Mr. Freshman to President of a mentoring organization to having a dual internship with Blandford Academy Alternative School and the Petersburg Bureau of Police.
Prior to BDS, he obtained a wealth of knowledge at the Brooklyn Criminal Court working with Safe Horizon, where he served as a Senior Case Manager, then promoted to Coordinator. There he helped victims of crime in an array of ways within the criminal justice system. There he sparked a program named, The Young Men’s Initiative, where the focus was to help alleviate some of the hidden struggles that come with having a court case.
Jordan believes that individuals in the criminal justice system frequently do not see a reflection of themselves while going through the process. He is committed to make a difference and spends his Saturdays in the Brownsville community mentoring with The Brooklyn Combine, teaching STEM, Law/Mock Trials, critical thinking, social justice and activism.
Jordan joined the BDS Family in the Fall of 2018 as a Youth Advocate with the Adolescent Representation Team.
