Althea Stevens is a proud New York native and a respected community advocate for the Bronx. As a dedicated single teen 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 and community centers 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. Each step of the way, Althea’s natural leadership and organizing skills were honed while advocating for families, seniors, young adults and students on important issues, while identifying and allocating much needed resources to neighborhoods of the Bronx.
Althea will continue her life’s work – of motivating and inspiring, leading with passion and advocating for the community – as a proud member of the City Council representing the great residents of City Council District 16.
