Hannah Hunthausen (Secretary) was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington. From an early age, she was drawn into the Jesuit ethos of a “faith that does justice,” as modeled by her social worker parents, faith community, and her gentle and courageous great-uncle, Raymond “Dutch” Hunthausen, who served as Archbishop of Seattle in the 1980s. Hannah graduated from Gonzaga University with a degree in French and has since worked in education and the nonprofit sector. She expects to graduate with a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training from Seattle University in 2016.
Hannah has worked at Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry in various capacities since 2013 (notably for the Faith & Family Homelessness Project ). She is currently Program Coordinator for the Center for Religious Wisdom and World Affairs, supporting the school’s efforts to engage, educate and mobilize faith communities around the problem of homelessness.
Hannah was thrilled to join the Real Change Board of Directors in 2016. She has been an avid reader of the paper since moving to Seattle, and resonates deeply with the organization’s commitment to hold up the voices of our homeless and marginalized neighbors and fight for social, economic and racial justice. She looks forward to deepening relationships with vendors and supporting the movement and caring, inclusive community that is Real Change.
