Sharon Stapel (Psych ‘91, CUNY Law ‘98) has spent her 20-year career working to end violence against women and members of the LGBT community.  During and after college, she was a dedicated advocate for survivors of domestic violence, from Northampton to South Africa. After graduating from CUNY Law in 1998, Sharon created the first Domestic Violence Project at the Legal Aid Society of New York, and later headed a similar project at South Brooklyn Legal Services.

 

In July 2008, Sharon became the Executive Director of New York’s Anti-Violence Project, which serves New York’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and HIV-affected communities.
