Maggie Mayer, National Urban Fellow

Maggie Mayer has a demonstrated commitment to having a positive social impact by promoting social justice and equity. She worked in affordable housing for seven years in San Francisco where politics around the current housing crisis, gentrification, and homelessness are at a pique. 


Maggie worked at BRIDGE Housing to ensure internal processes for tenant selection were fair and efficient. She helped scale the department and operational systems as the organization grew to manage 80 affordable housing communities spread from California to the Pacific Northwest. Additionally, Maggie participated in a number of city and state wide collaborative projects including public/private partnerships, efforts to create a centralized housing application process in San Francisco, and coordinated entry systems for services and supportive housing units.  


Originally from the East Coast Maggie moved to California after obtaining a BA in Political Science and Human Rights from Bard College. She is currently an MPA candidate at Baruch College - Marxe School of Public and International Affairs
