Stephanie Farfan is the Spring Fellow for LCWINS. Before joining LCWINS, Stephanie was the Policy, Practices and Latinx Outreach Associate at RespectAbility, a nonprofit that advocates for people with disabilities in the United States. There, she worked on employment policy and created a Spanish-language toolkit for immigrants with children with disabilities. She was also previously an intern for Win Without War, where she focused on the intersection between immigration and militarization.
Stephanie has an MA in International Peace and Conflict Resolution from American University, where her research focus was disability issues in Ecuador, and a BA from Juniata College in Peace and Conflict Studies. She hopes to combine the experience she has working with the Latino community and her academic work in peace studies into a career that can help the international disability community.
Stephanie lives in Miami, FL with her family.
