Naa Hammond joined FIERCE as an active member in 2009 and became a staff member in 2010 to support FIERCE's youth-led fundraising programs. During her time as an active member, Naa became involved in FIERCE's member-led campaigns, national program, and grassroots fundraising. Her experience at FIERCE inspired her to learn more about fundraising and community organizing through internships with the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, the Urban Justice Center (Mental Health Project), Queers for Economic Justice, and Third Wave Foundation. These experiences helped her develop a deep commitment to creating sustainable social justice movements and communities in New York City and her home countries, Ghana and Zimbabwe. Naa is a graduate of New York University where she studied Social and Cultural Analysis and Urban Design and Architecture Studies.
