PUTTING   MY EXPERIENCE   TO WORK

Althea Stevens is a proud native New Yorker and a respected community advocate for the Bronx community.  As a dedicated mother, she works hard to create a sustainable future for her child and for all children and families who live in under-resourced neighborhoods.

Althea began her career in civic service more than 15 years ago working for non-profit agencies that focused on giving a voice to the most vulnerable populations. She organized voting rights information sessions, led strategy workshops to address gang policing, and created annual youth forums and community celebrations to bridge relationships between residents and neighborhood partners.

 

Althea honed her natural leadership and organizing skills as she advocated for families, seniors, young adults, and students on important issues - education, youth development, health care, public safety, and civic engagement. 

 

Her dedication and passion to serve others has earned Althea seats on a number of Advisory Committees, including the New York City Mayor’s Office of Community Affairs, New York City Housing Authority Tenants' Association, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) Inc. and government agencies. In 2019, she was also honored by Council member Ayala,  as a Women's History Month Honoree, for her exemplary community work. As a member of the New York City Council, Althea will continue her life’s work of motivating and inspiring, leading with passion, and advocating for the community.
