Andrea Hall joined InterAction in March 2022 as Senior Manager of the Together Project. She brings more than 10 years of experience as a policy advocate, analyst, and organizer at both the state and federal level.
Andrea advocates on behalf of NGOs that face discrimination based on their faith-based status, the populations they serve, or their operating principles. In this role, she works to counter targeted discrimination, disinformation attacks, and denial of financial access. She also advises and provides analysis and input on legal issues related to humanitarian policy and practice as well as U.S. court cases that threaten to close space for international civil society organizations to operate.
Prior to joining InterAction, Andrea spent six years at Charity & Security Network, where she worked to create enabling space for humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding organizations that found their programs impeded by overly restrictive national security laws and policies. Before entering the international aid and development arena, Andrea held a volunteer leadership position at Amnesty International USA, where she helped end Maryland’s death penalty, and spent 17 years working as a writer and editor.
Andrea was born and raised in Dallas. She holds a B.A. from Trinity University (San Antonio) and a J.D. from the University of Richmond. She enjoys hiking, trying new recipes, reading, and exploring independent bookstores.
