Andrea Hall

Senior Manager, Civic Space

Andrea Hall joined InterAction in March 2022 and brings more than 10 years of experience as a policy advocate, analyst, and organizer at both the state and federal level.

Andrea works to preserve and create enabling space for NGOs that face harmful narratives or political attacks on their humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding programs. In this role, she works to counter targeted discrimination and denial of financial access and ensure there are adequate statutory and regulatory guardrails for NGO operations. She also advises and provides analysis and input on legal issues related to humanitarian policy and practice, legislation, and 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 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.
