As a 15-year-old mom, Ana-Maria Ramos faced some pretty stiff odds to get an education and launch a professional career— less than 20% of teen mothers get their bachelor’s degree before they reach 30.  But Ana-Maria has defied statistics. Born into a family of seven children to poor, immigrant parents, this lawyer, educator, community organizer, activist, wife and mother of two is the poster woman for perseverance. Today, she is running to give voice to the silenced, poor and underserved in her diverse community of Richardson, which lies west of Dallas.  

Her transition from citizen to candidate began like many first-time candidates, just after the November 2016 election. The outcome compelled Ana-Maria to start an Indivisible group with neighbors, which met weekly in her Richardson home. When the President’s repeated attacks on Muslims, immigrants and LGBTQ communities went unanswered by her district’s current rep in the Texas House, she stepped up. “Forty percent of our immigrant community speaks a language other than English at home. When my state ’representative’ refused to speak up against extreme right-wing policies against the people here who are being vilified, I decided I had to lead the fight.”

Ana-Maria has the background and grit needed to represent her community in a volatile political environment. Her education experience is extensive. She has tutored, taught second grade, established after school and summer programs for kids, and opened a community college campus.  Today, in addition to running her law practice where she donates her time to help Dreamers complete their DACA applications, she is also a government professor.

For the last 20 years, Ana Maria has worked closely with her community and police force on revitalization projects and public health and safety programs as Executive Director of Jubilee Park and Community Center in Dallas. She led an initiative to buy a neighborhood bar that attracted criminal activities and had it demolished. A police sub-station now stands there. And, she obtained grants to help underprivileged citizens with home improvements and to install security cameras in the area, reducing crime.

Because of the work and trust she built with people in the area, community members regularly sought her assistance with immigration, consumer fraud and other matters of injustice that required legal assistance, inspiring her to apply to SMU Law School. Soon after being accepted, Ana-Maria was offered the opportunity to head development and operations of El Centro College West Campus. Not willing to sacrifice either opportunity, she did both. By day, she led strategic programming and program development at the community college. At night, she juggled motherhood and studying law.

When elected to office, Ana-Maria plans to improve healthcare delivery and public education, and fight for women’s health and reproductive rights. Implementing sensible gun violence reforms and delivering property tax relief are also at the top of her government improvements list.  And, she will serve with a fiery passion that was first sparked as an 8-year-old in her native Dallas. “I remember seeing new immigrant children being laughed at and bullied because they were too poor. I wanted to fight to protect my classmates and that fire is still burning today.”
