Nancy Gr​uskin

Ms. Gruskin founded the Stuart C. Gruskin Foundation to advocate for bicycle and pedestrian safety after her husband was tragically killed by a cyclist in New York City in 2009.  Together with the Bloomberg administration, they passed two new laws focusing on the reporting of statistics and requiring education on rules of the road for delivery cyclists.  The Foundation also partnered with Hunter College to release an original data study focusing on how many pedestrians went to the hospital after being struck by bicycles.  Prior to the passing of the laws, the Foundation launched a citywide PR campaign entitled, “The Pedal Pledge” whereby restaurants that employed deliver cyclists would agree to educate their own cyclists.  In return, they would get a “Pedal Pledge” sticker for their window for the viewing public as well as pledge document for their wall.

 

Nancy also handled the national PR for artists such as Victor Borge, Judy Collins, The King’s Singers and clarinetist, Richard Stoltzman.
