[July 18, 2018, Niagara University, NY] Former Niagara University General Counsel Stephanie “Cole” Adams, now the owner of The Law Office of Stephanie Adams PLLC, in Buffalo, was one of the 23 recipients of a $25,000 grant from last week’s Facebook-sponsored Ignite Buffalo competition. And she’s one of a host of “Vincentians of Wherever.”
She will use the grant to hire multilingual people with insight into the immigrant and refugee experience, as well as people who have been directly impacted by Buffalo’s systemic poverty.
“I opened my law office determined to hire people who would make a difference,” Adams said. “These hires will help us reach clients and will make sure the law is accessible to a diverse array of people starting new businesses. That will make those business stronger and strengthen our community.”
Adams credited the time she spent at Niagara University for her decision to pursue the community-building opportunity. Read the rest by clicking here….
