I am writing to express my support for a Commutation of Sentence for Ramiro “Ramsey” Muñiz, who has been incarcerated for 21 years. He is 72 years of age and he is not violent. He is not able to walk as before. He has chronic, degenerative health conditions including a hip injury and herniated disc. He spends over 80% of his time in a wheelchair.
Ramsey Muñiz is respected by many people throughout the United States for the contributions that he has made throughout his life. Through his community activism he brought about educational, economic, and political advancements for Mexican Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, Chicanos, and many others.
Muñiz has no history of violence. I join the national organizations, congressmen, educators, and many others who seek a Commutation of Sentence for Ramsey Muñiz. We will remain politically involved in this issue, knowing that Muñiz is a candidate based on his age, medical condition, and non-violent history.
Thank you for your attention to this matter that is important to many supporters.
