Ramsey Muñiz

Tribuno Del Pueblo  |  Issue: December | January 2017

Ramsey Muñiz is an incarcerated Hispanic political activist who ran for governor of Texas in 1972 and 1974, each time as the nominee of the Raza Unida Party. He lost both elections to the Democrat Dolph Briscoe, a wealthy banker and landowner from Uvalde, Texas. He is the first Hispanic to have his name appear on a Texas gubernatorial general election ballot.

Wherever Muñiz spoke, he issued a call for political, social, and spiritual consciousness.

According to the Houston attorney Dick DeGuerin, Muñiz changed the face of politics in Texas. He gave power of inclusion to Hispanic Americans. He particularly changed the face of political offices in South Texas. There has been a lot of resentment from the Establishment because of that. A lot of people would like to see him fall because of who he is and what he did.

Ramsey Muñiz considers himself a political prisoner incarcerated on false charges.
