Ronald L. “Mo” Moten is a fifth generation Washingtonian. He had brushes with the law as a youth and later was incarcerated at Danbury Federal Correction Institution where he earned his GED from the state of Connecticut. Upon his release from prison in 1995, Ron began providing outreach and then became the spokesman for Cease Fire Don’t Smoke the Brothers. He also taught at the Village Learning Center, one of the first D.C. Public Charter Schools. He was appointed to Ballou Senior High School PTSA, The Mayor’s Taskforce to Eliminate Homicides, and to Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s Commission on Black Men and Boys.
Ron is best known as a co-founder of Peaceoholics in 2004 with Jauhar Abraham. With Ron as the COO, Peaceoholics became a nationally known nonprofit organization successfully combating violence and promoting peace among youth. Peaceoholics’ results were remarkable sending 160 troubled youth to college, employing 361 D.C. citizens and brokering over forty truces between rival gangs. He and Mr. Abraham developed a curriculum called Rebuild the Village Triangle in One model for schools, institutions, and communities that focuses on positive youth and family development, and empowering communities.
In 2012 Ron ran as a “Civil Rights Republican” for the Ward 7 D.C. City Council seat. He is committed to the historic principles of the Party of Abraham Lincoln, Jack Kemp, and the many black Civil Rights Republicans who fought for freedom, responsibility and opportunity such as Fredrick Douglass, Nannie Helen Burroughs, Dr. Benjamin Carson, and Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
