Managing Director, Democracy
Ricardo Ramírez is the Managing Director for the Democracy Collaborative at ReThink Media. In this role, he leads the organization’s efforts to provide movements with winning narratives on money in politics, voting rights, and fair courts.
With more than a decade of communications work, Ricardo brings high-level experience in electoral campaigns and social justice efforts, where he has shaped strategies to connect with and empower different audiences. Before joining ReThink, Ricardo served as a senior member of the communications team at Advancement Project’s national office. In that capacity, he worked with organizations at the forefront of grassroots voting rights and rights restoration fights, and he helped power communications strategies that resulted in thousands regaining the right to vote.
Ricardo got his start through years of work in political press offices, including Capitol Hill, the Democratic National Committee, and President Obama’s successful 2012 campaign in Florida. He also has ample experience with communications on immigrant justice. When he is not working to strengthen communities’ political voice, he is working to promote racial and fiscal equity in his native Puerto Rico.
