Hannah Wagner worked as a research fellow with the Bailey-Boushay House – a part of the Virginia Mason Medical Center – to document the social determinants of healthcare that affect the lives of individuals experiencing homelessness. This work is part of a greater study of the social and structural forces that contribute to displacement and barriers to stable housing in Seattle. After completing this summer fellowship, Hannah will return to Detroit, Michigan to begin law school and to pursue a career in public interest law. A Senior Fellow (Detroit 2017), Hannah is involved in both transit and housing justice movements in Detroit, serving as a Board Member for the Motor City Freedom Riders and as a community advocate against land dispossession.
