Staff Interview: Hannah Adams, Education Coordinator

Posted on 22. Jun, 2012 by

What is your current role in the office?

I am the Education Coordinator.  I organize and implement many of our education and outreach initiatives.

Can you describe some of your day-to-day work in the office?

I manage Fair Housing University, which is our initiative to educate stakeholders in the community about their fair housing rights and responsibilities.  We offer trainings to housing providers, service providers, and other community members. I also do workshops with young people and manage the distribution of our children’s book, The Fair Housing Five & the Haunted House.  Finally, I do web outreach and graphic design for the Center.

What is a project or case that you are currently working on?

One thing I am working on right now is trying to figure out a way to package our fair housing board game so we can share it with other fair housing centers and educators who are interested in using it in their classrooms.  The Equal Opportunity Game is a board game we created for youth to demonstrate the impact of housing discrimination, and it just won an award through the Ashoka Changemakers “Activating Empathy” competition.

What is something interesting about you that most people do not know?

I used to want to be an entomologist and wanted to study insects for my career, but unfortunately I am afraid of spiders.

What is your favorite event or festival in New Orleans?

The Saint Ann’s Parade, which starts in the Bywater, and everyone dresses up in crazy costumes and parades into the French Quarter on Mardi Gras.
