Research & Policy Analyst, RePower LA
Stephanie joined LAANE on the RePower LA team in 2016 after completing her Master’s in Urban and Regional Planning degree at UCLA. While in planning school, she worked with fellow students and the faculty to advocate for the urban planning curriculum to include more marginalized voices and critical perspectives. She created a new course in the department to explore the histories and development of incarceration and policing and implications for urban planning and policymaking. Before graduate school, Stephanie worked on state and local policy and political campaigns in the San Francisco Bay Area.
