The face of the organization:
Stephanie Rivera is a Latina entrepreneur, advocate, and a practicing litigator licensed in the state of New York. She focuses on supporting people who have experienced housing discrimination, and bringing cases against landlords and brokers to hold them responsible. We met over zoom to discuss her time at Represented Foundation where she created Bodega Legal, a space where people feel welcomed and supported when seeking legal counsel.
Represented Foundation's mission is to close the diversity gap in social impact leadership.
