The Hispanic Professionals Networking Group invites you to its November 2nd Latino Leaders Networking Event in the Bronx
You're invited to HPNG's November 2nd Latino Leaders Networking Event in the Bronx.
At the age of twenty-three, Ruben Diaz, Jr. was elected to the New York State Assembly, which made him the youngest person elected to that legislative body since Theodore Roosevelt. Since then, with his career in politics and his passionate support of civil and human rights, he has demonstrated how Latino leaders put actions behinds their words.
Please join us as we proudly welcome:
The Honorable Ruben Diaz, Jr.
President of the Borough of the Bronx
Elected Bronx Borough President in the Special Election on April 21st, 2009, Ruben Diaz, Jr., previously served in the New York State Assembly since 1997, representing the 85th Assembly District.
Throughout his seven terms in the State Legislature, Ruben Diaz, Jr. was a champion for working families in the Bronx. He demonstrated passion for constituent service, social advocacy and community empowerment balanced with support for sensible, green economic development and job creation programs. He sponsored and secured passage of important and innovative laws to address the consequences of the intolerable levels of asthma in the South Bronx, healthcare insurance fraud, and quality of life concerns.
Borough President Diaz has proven himself to be a fearless and tireless advocate for justice and equality for all. A staunch defender of the environment, he is a leading voice against environmental racism and injustice and helped lead the fight to restore the Bronx River. Due to his tireless and relentless advocacy in the case of his constituent, Amadou Diallo - a law-abiding young African Bronx resident who was wrongly killed by four NYPD officers in a hail of 41 bullets – Ruben Diaz, Jr. became known around the world for his advocacy for civil and human rights.
A lifelong resident of the Bronx, Borough President Diaz lives in the Southeast Bronx with his wife Hilda Gerena Diaz and their two sons, Ruben Diaz III and Ryan Isaiah Diaz. He graduated from Lehman College, City University of New York, with a Bachelors degree in political theory.
Don't miss it, I'll see you there!
