Jackson is a sophomore honors student at Arizona State University working towards a double BA in Sustainability and Global Studies with a minor in Spanish and a certificate in Cross-Sector Leadership. He currently leads Sun Devils for Fair Trade, a student-led organization dedicated to educating the ASU community about Fair Trade practices and being empowered consumers. His journey with Fair Trade began after leading a walkout for gun control at his high school in Columbus, Ohio and founding State of Ohio Youth Activists (SOYA). He began his involvement with Fair Trade while volunteering at a local Fair Trade nonprofit. With hopes of working in international development, Jackson loves to travel and is planning to stud abroad in Spain in 2020. He is working with the UN Academic Impact program as a Millennium Fellow during the fall 2019 semester to support the development of a university-wide Ethical Procurement Campaign at ASU. In his free time, Jackson is an avid runner and biker and dreams of one day biking across the country, advocating for ethical consumption and production practices along the way.
