While at DU, Hannah studied Multiculturalism, Human Rights, and Arabic in Rabat, Morocco for a semester.

Hannah’s passion for advocating for civil rights was formed during college, where she worked as a Violence Prevention Peer Educator for three years, facilitating trainings on consent, campus resources, and bystander intervention to the DU community. Hannah also worked at the Blue Bench as an Outreach Intern canvassing the Denver Metro Area to inform community members of resources and issues surrounding gender violence. Hannah was nominated in her senior year to be the Undergraduate Student Government’s Executive Secretary of Collegiate Gender Violence Topics. In this role, she developed policy to protect the rights of survivors and decrease gender violence, advocated at the Colorado Capitol for legislation supporting survivors, and served as the main point-of-contact for students regarding sexual violence issues.
Since graduating, Hannah has testified on behalf of the Colorado Coalition of Sexual Assault at the Colorado Capitol, lobbied to Senator Cory Gardner in Washington DC on behalf of End Rape on Campus, Know Your IX, and the ACLU of Colorado to vote against Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and spoke on gender violence topics at the People’s Filibuster outside the US Supreme Court. In addition, she worked as an AmeriCorps VISTA at Community Resource Center for a year of service, supporting the organization’s marketing and outreach needs. Hannah is ecstatic to be a part of the RM team and be given the opportunities to expand her knowledge of social justice issues, advocate for civil rights, and empower communities.
