A proud Fronterizo joins the Great Stadium Debate

September 7, 2012

As part of the Craft Beer Debates, we’ve brought together four important perspectives on the issue of publicly funding a Chargers stadium downtown in San Diego.  One of the panelists has a long history of working hard to give voice to the voiceless. Since a downtown stadium would impact large, predominantly Latino communities south of downtown, including a panelist who lives in Logan Heights was an important part of this process.  Let’s meet Christian Ramirez of Equality Alliance San Diego.

Mr. Ramirez will present a strong community voice for our first debate

Christian was born in Tijuana and has lived in Logan Heights for over a decade. He’s a well know immigrant rights organizer in the region and appears from time to time in the news, commentating on border enforcement and immigration policy. A proud fronterizo or border lander, he has been a poet, a champion for the rights of others, a peace maker, a columnist, made an unsuccessful attempt to run for office and has spent many hours waiting in line at the border (for the curious, check this article about 5-minute border crossing). Once in a while you can spot him in a local watering hole enjoying a fine San Diego craft beer and talking about politics.
