Who is Righteous Rebels

Meet the Team

On a mission to empower women of color, lifelong friends Vanessa Román & Nadine Denizard created Righteous Rebels. Since meeting in 1980 Vanessa and Nadine have learned to navigate their shared cultural values and traditions in a world trying to surpress and demonize those very sacred values.   Today, Vanessa and Nadine are reclaiming their Indigenous and African ancestral history.
