Ramos and Velsquez, others, inducted into the Ohio Civil Rights Commission Hall of Fame, Oct. 14

Salvador Ramos and Baldemar Velsquez will be inducted into the Ohio Civil Rights Hall of Fame on October 14, 2010, at 10:00AM, at the Ohio Statehouse Atrium. Their biographies include:

Salvador Ramos (1939 2009): Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, Salvador Ramos obtained his bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from Texas Western College.  Following his passion for serving people, Mr. Ramos took a position as a teacher before joining the Air Force.  He was an avid activist for the equal treatment of Hispanics in military service.  He protested inequities against Hispanics and lobbied for direct hire authority earning him the title as the first Hispanic Employment Program Manager at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.  Mr. Ramos often spent his personal time educating Hispanic officers of their rights and advocating for equal treatment by providing representation to them in the grievance process.  He also advocated for the promotion of Hispanic employees in the Air Force and worked diligently to create the Hispanic engineering recruitment program.  Mr. Ramos was recognized with highest distinction as the Hispanic Employment Program Manager of the Year.  Following his retirement from active duty as Lt. Colonel, Mr. Ramos went on to serve as an Air Force Academy Liaison to Greene County high schools where he continued his legacy of civil rights advocacy making special efforts to recruit minorities and females. Nominator: L. Tony Ortiz.

Baldemar Velsquez: Baldemar Velsquez was born into a migrant farm worker family in 1947 and began working on a farm at the age of six.  He graduated with a bachelors degree in Sociology in 1969 and has been an avid activist for migrant worker rights for nearly five decades. Mr. Velsquez has dedicated his life to working for social justice, dignity, and improved working conditions for agricultural workers through leadership in organizing and advocacy.  Mr. Velsquez has gained international recognition for advancing migrant worker rights around the world although much of his work has focused on Ohio.   In 1978, Mr. Velsquez led 2,000 workers in one of the largest agricultural strikes in history when he called for trade union recognition and was successful in landing a multi-party collective bargaining agreement.  He also organized movements to successfully negotiate collective bargaining agreements with Campbells, Heinz, Deans Foods and Mt. Olive Pickles.  Mr. Velsquez served as an integral force in negotiating the founding of an independent labor commission, the Dunlop Commission, to extend collective bargaining rights to Midwest farm workers for the first time.  Mr. Velsquez currently serves on the Board of Commissioners for the Ohio Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs and as President of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee that he helped to form in 1963.  Mr. Velazquez is the recipient of several awards and honors including an Honorary Doctorate of Human Letters from the University Toledo, Hispanic Leadership Award from the National Council of La Raza, and the Midwest Academy Award for outstanding contributions to social change. Nominator: Lilleana Cavanaugh, Ohio Commission on Hispanic & Latino Affairs (OCHLA).
