The thing about equality is that it’s both for rights and responsibilities. Just how car drivers and pedestrians must follow traffic rules, so do bicyclists.
Ronald spoke during the Hoboken City Council meeting to invite the Council members to the #Ride4Safety on Nov 14th, 2015 at 11AM. It’s a group bicycle ride organized by Bike Hoboken on Washington St to advocate for a protected bike lane. Here is the link to the event page on Facebook: https://t.co/FyU7NosIFv
The group will meet at the corner of River St and Hudson Pl, next to the Hudson Bike Share station outside the PATH Train entrance. The bicyclists will get some basic tips for safe bicycling by the Hoboken Police bicycle patrol officers, and they will also be joining the group ride. The street will not be closed to cars since the purpose of #Ride4Safety is to show that bicyclists have equal rights to road space as car drivers do.
We can all agree that Hoboken streets should be safe enough for an 8-year-old bicyclist and an 80-year-old pedestrian. That’s why Bike Hoboken is pushing for a protected bike lane in the redesign of Washington Street; it is the first step towards a friendlier street for everyone.
We invite you to join us for Hoboken’s #Ride4Safety: a group bike ride on Washington St on November 14th to advocate for a protected bike lane.
We’ll meet 11AM at the corner of River St and Hudson Pl, next to the Hudson Bike Share station outside the PATH Train entrance.

On October 16, 2015, NALP brought New American elected officials from across the country to the White House, where they reflected on the impact of their diverse identities on leadership and discussed best practices for serving immigrant communities. Here’s a recap of Power and Policy 2015.
Ronald was a speaker at the Ready to Win training for the New American Leaders Project (NALP) at the George Washington University on October 18th. His presentation on Digital Strategy was focused on preparing first- and second-generation immigrants for civic leadership.
Nearly one in five Americans are either immigrants or were born in the U.S. to at least one immigrant parent. The organization recruits recognized individuals with a track record of civic involvement and trains them in the key skills needed for leadership from the community to the Capitol. At this training, the nonprofit will be providing new American leaders with a non-partisan, safe space in which they can learn about the challenges and opportunities of citizenship commitment and determine how they can best contribute to making our democracy stronger and more vibrant. NALP’s goals are threefold:
To expand the number of immigrants in leadership positions
Increase voter participation in immigrant communities
Allow immigrant voters more opportunities to engage with leaders who reflect their unique experiences
