Jordan Decker is a nationally and internationally known speaker and educator on TransYouth Suicide prevention. His idea of living a private life was cut short when bans on Transgender peoples started coming from Washington. Having known the depths of bullying and suicidal ideation, knowing the “trickle down” affect on children, understanding the micro-aggressions in laws written against specific peoples, and learning that 57% of trans-youth will attempt suicide, Jordan stepped into the spotlight and out the closet once again! His current work encompasses the development of Trans HeartLine, a non-profit organization that educates and advocates for transgender and gender non-conforming humans in Faith communities as well as development of post-operation recovery homes for transitioning persons.
