This episode contains descriptions of sexual violence.
Victor Rivera has framed his life story as one of redemption and salvation. Escaping homelessness and drug addiction, he founded the Bronx Parent Housing Network, one of the largest nonprofits operating homeless shelters in New York City.
But that’s not the whole story. A Times investigation has found a pattern of allegations of sexual abuse and financial misconduct against him during his career.
We look at the accusations against Mr. Rivera and ask what lessons can be learned.
Guest: Amy Julia Harris, an investigative reporter on The New York Times’s Metro desk.
