Styling Social Justice Podcast
The Contessa and Rania Mankarious aim to draw attention to and shine a light on important and serious community issues through the dialogue with their guests. Each detail, down to the color in their logo, aims to reflect the mission of their podcast. Yellow is a color known best for being attention grabbing, bright and vivid. It also represents optimism, positivity, opportunity and enlightenment—all principles that the women of Styling Social Justice bring to their audience.
Styling Social Justice is where style meets global safety and health.
In their professional positions, Rania Mankarious serves as the Executive Director of Crime Stoppers Houston, and Donae Cangelosi Chramosta is the founder and owner of The Vintage Contessa. These two fierce women share a strong love for faith, family, community and fashion that is as big as Texas. Both are active community advocates, philanthropists and dedicated mothers combining their professional strengths to create a podcast that encourages real change in their community while keeping things light, fun and stylish. These two women are actively invested in the wellbeing of Houston, making this partnership a natural fit.
While the podcast covers important safety and health issues, there is still an element of fashion and style. The dynamic duo likes to say they are styling conversation and creating glamour that is global.
