Hannah Green

Hannah is a program associate on Vera’s Ending Girls’ Incarceration team, within the Center on Youth Justice. The Ending Girls’ Incarceration Initiative works with New York City and other jurisdictions around the country to disrupt the unique pathways that lead to the incarceration of girls and gender expansive youth. Hannah came to Vera with a background in philanthropy and policy, having worked most recently for the JPMorgan Chase Foundation. Previously, she served as a legislative correspondent for U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill working on issues relating to defense and foreign policy, including legislation to reform how sexual assault is handled within the military justice system.

Hannah also has experience in direct service with women and girls. Prior to joining Vera, she worked with survivor defendants awaiting trial in New York City and volunteered as a rape crisis advocate, supporting survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault during their time in the emergency room following a violent incident.

Hannah has a bachelor’s degree in history and art history from New York University and a master’s in social work from Columbia University.
