Heather Hill

Heather Hill has served as a member of the UNA-NCA Human Rights Committee since December 2014. She was appointed Co-Chair of the UNA-NCA HRC in August 2015 and became Chair in June 2017. Ms. Hill has lived and worked across four continents, making her home the past five years on Capitol Hill. 

In 2016, Ms. Hill collaborated on a photojournalism project documenting urban homelessness, which was recognized by Former HUD Secretary Castro and was featured in the Washington Post and on Fox5 News. She was awarded a grant from the UNA-USA through a partnership with the UN Office of Human Rights to develop the #MappingForward project in October 2017 with the UNA-NCA. 

Ms. Hill currently works as the Communications Specialist at The Cloudburst Group, a small business working at the intersection of domestic and international development in DC. Prior to joining Cloudburst, Ms. Hill worked at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and in higher education. She holds an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts with a BA in Intercultural Studies from Houghton College.

Vision Statement: Now more than ever before, we need the US to work closely with the UN and the American people to understand that they can both participate in and benefit from the work of the UN. I have been proud to work with the UNA-NCA through program leadership on the Human Rights Committee and in pursuit of achieving success in the implementation of global human rights--and to me, the global always comes back to the local. In joining the board, I look forward to contributing to the strategic vision of the UNA-NCA and helping to develop and cultivate partnerships with people and organizations in our area, strengthening UNA-NCA and increasing visibility of both the organization and the issues we tackle here.
