Andres Ramirez was born and raised in Southeast Los Angeles as the first generation child to Salvadoran immigrant parents. Ramirez has spent the last twelve years organizing and movement building in every corner of the LA. He has led multiple advocacy and organizing efforts assuring that land use, transportation, housing, and environmental policies are developed and implemented equitably.
Ramirez is currently Policy Director with Pacoima Beautiful. He plans to help the robust LA Clean Energy coalition advocate for a Los Angeles that is 100% renewable and clean energy. He also represents Pacoima Beautiful at the Metro Policy Advisory Council, Measure A Equity Alliance, ACT LA, LEAP LA, and as member of the Disadvantaged Communities Advisory Group. He believes the city should invest to modernize and clean the city's energy consumption and this investment should prioritize low income communities of color such as Pacoima, Boyle Heights, South LA, and Wilmington.
