"As societies build walls of separation between communities,
ICAAD works to remove each brick to illuminate our common humanity"

Hannah Shirey


Hannah Shirey recognizes the events of September 11, 2001, and the aftermath as formational in her life. Post 9/11 she went through a process of acknowledging the long history of violence that has been caused by cultural and religious misunderstandings within our global community. This realization ultimately led Hannah to study processes of reconciliation in Morocco, learn the Arabic language and work to improve relations and understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims here in America.

Hannah served on ICAAD’s Transdisciplinary Advisory from 2012-2016.
