  • Contracts management
  • Vendor relations

  • Project coordination

Before joining JFF, Hanan was a contracts administrator at a health care nonprofit in the Chicago area. Previously, she worked at the Office of the Mayor in Los Angeles, where she supported the deputy mayor and the Office of Public Safety during the city’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial justice movement of 2020.

She is a member of the American Bar Association, the Eritrean American Bar Association, and the Muslim Bar Association of Chicago.

Hanan believes in JFF’s mission of empowering communities with quality jobs and educational opportunities. “There can be no racial justice without economic justice,” she says.
