Monique Ramirez Paralegal
Background
  • Monique is a first-generation college graduate of San Jose State University where she majored in Justice Studies with a minor in Human Rights.
  • She was raised with the knowledge of the struggles her grandparents endured as immigrants in the United States and bears witness to the impact their sacrifices in the fields of Salinas, CA had on her family and the opportunities they helped provide. She admires her grandfather's activism alongside Cesar Chavez and cherishes the photo she has of her grandfather in the New York Times memorializing his fight for fair work and equal pay for migrant farm workers.
  • She can recall being 9 years old and experiencing her young uncle get sentenced to over 15 years in prison. This is what sparked her passion in criminal justice and prisoner's rights.

As an intern at the Santa Clara County Sherriff’s Office Programs Unit at Elmwood Correctional Facility she conducted interviews and assessments of inmates, coordinated projects with small groups of inmates, and provided reports on inmate behavior and progress.

At the Santa Clara County Reentry Center, Monique was the Chairperson for the Alpha Phi Sigma Honor Society’s involvement with the Prison Education Project.  She was responsible for developing lesson plans for inmates serving the remaining of their sentences in rehabilitation programming and coordinating her team’s participating in the project.
