On October 16th, 2015, Ronald Bautista will be joining pioneering new American leaders in elected office during the Annual Power & Policy Conference at the White House.
Ronald will also be a speaker at the Ready to Win training for the New American Leaders Project (NALP) at the George Washington University on October 18th. NALP is the only national nonpartisan organization specifically 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
