Erwin Figueroa is the Director of Organizing at Transportation Alternatives. For the past five years, he has created safer streets in New York City, first as the Bronx Organizer, and now at the city-wide level. As Bronx Organizer, Figueroa successfully led campaigns to improve Bronx streets, including a “complete street” redesign of Broadway in Northwest Bronx and Complete the Concourse, a campaign that gained pedestrian and cycling improvements to the South Bronx section of the corridor. Recent victories include the expansion of Open Streets in New York City through the Open Streets Coalition, 14th Street Busway in Manhattan, and protected bike lanes on Grand Street in Brooklyn. Figueroa holds a BA in Audiovisual Communication from the University of Puerto Rico-Río Piedras.
