Lane Hanson, Chair
Community Engagement Coordinator, UW Madison
Adjunct Faculty, Edgewood College
 
I am a social worker and currently teach at UW Madison and Edgewood College. My approach to teaching is 
grounded in social justice and my teaching philosophy involves first unlearning the damaging socialization processes we 
all learn as individuals living in a majority culture that is dominated by white supremacy, capitalism and patriarchy. 
I am happy to be back in the world of GSAFE; where my journey towards living as my authentic self first began.😊

“Words Hurt Week helped me discover the importance of intersectionality within all social movements – recognizing that we cannot make progress within the queer community without also examining the systems that impact other oppressions.”  Maria, Former GSAFE Youth Activist
