Three Big Questions with: Hannah Short

We’re back with another installment of “3 Questions”, a monthly feature highlighting members of the YWCA Lancaster team!

This month’s 3Q is with Hannah Short, our new Equity Training Coordinator for the Center for Racial and Gender Equity.

1)What motivates you to do racial justice work in Lancaster?

Growing up in Lancaster City wishing I could change the social climate motivated me to do racial justice work. I love having the opportunity to give back to my community and be part of the solution to making it a more welcoming place to live.

2) What’s your CRGE super power?

My CRGE super power would probably be contributing innovative ideas that bring people together!

3) What gives you hope about the future for our community?

I am hopeful that with the future generations having access to knowledge faster and in accessible ways through the media that there is a chance for them to be conscious of the flaws in our community’s history and do their best not to perpetuate those habits of harm. There’s a chance for our community to rebuild the structures and standards passed onto us, so I’d love to see a future with embracement change!

We’re so excited to have Hannah as part of the YWCA Lancaster team, and can’t wait for you to see her in action at an upcoming Racial Equity Institute or YWCA Lancaster event!
