Ricardo Munoz, retired attorney and administrative judge
Ricardo Muñoz is a retired attorney and administrative judge active during the Chicano Rights Movement in the 1960s and 1970s. Taking advantage of the opportunities afforded by affirmative action, Muñoz earned his law degree at University of California Los Angeles at a time when few Latinos held power in the courts or political offices. By involving himself on the legal side of political activism, Ricardo helped institute policies to protect Latinos against racial profiling. Stemming from a family tradition of activism and scholarly excellence
, Muñoz shares his thoughts and perspective on the Chicano Rights Movement for our "Brown and Proud" chapter.
