About the Keynote Speaker:
Stephanie Rudolph is the Director of the Source of Income Unit at the New York City Commission on Human Rights where she supervises a team of attorneys and advocates dedicated to enforcing the New York City human rights law. Her team intervenes when apartment brokers and/or owners refuse to rent to homeless families and individuals with housing subsidies provided by the government. Rudolph’s team also handles claims of housing discrimination related to race, disability, national origin, perceived citizenship status, and age.
Prior to joining the Commission, Rudolph represented tenants in affirmative litigation against neglectful and harassing landlords at New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI) and the Urban Justice Center. In group cases on behalf of up to 300 tenants in both state and federal court, she has compelled owners to restore basic services, cease unlawful discrimination, and remediate indoor toxins such as mold, lead, and asbestos.
Rudolph earn her B.A. from Haverford College and her J.D. from Stanford Law School. She began her legal career as a Skadden Fellow at NYLPI where she developed a “Healthy Homes” project aimed at remediating indoor toxins such as lead paint, asbestos, and asthma triggers.
