Washington, D.C. - Maggie’s List, a federal political action committee (PAC), is pleased to announce that current Virginia State Co-Chairman Tina Ramirez will serve as a new spokesman for the organization. A current candidate for Virginia State Senate, Tina will now assume a greater role in the Maggie’s List national organization as we work to build upon the record number of conservative women elected to federal office in the last election cycle.
“Tina is one of the hardest working women in politics, and we are thrilled that she has accepted the responsibility of service as spokesperson for Maggie’s List,” said former Florida Lieutenant Governor and Maggie’s List National Spokesperson Jennifer Carroll. “Tina’s outstanding efforts on behalf of Maggie’s List in Virginia and her extensive amount of professional experience on both national and international stages make her a natural fit to serve in this new, expanded role,” she continued.
“I am honored to serve Maggie’s List as a spokesperson during this critical election year,” said Maggie’s List Spokeswoman Tina Ramirez. “In today’s uncertain world, electing women who support our ideals of limited government, fiscal responsibility and strong national security is more important than ever. I look forward to supporting Maggie’s List and the candidates they champion across the country,” she continued.

Whether crafting legislation, securing the release of imprisoned victims, or engaging foreign dignitaries, Tina Ramirez has worked diligently to bring greater freedom and dignity to people around the world. From her early days as a high school teacher, through recent years in charge of an international non-profit organization, she has committed her entire life to service and to the preservation of human rights for all people.
While working for the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, she developed policies to improve religious freedom in several countries. As a Foreign Policy Advisor for numerous members of Congress, she helped start and direct the bi-partisan Congressional International Religious Freedom Caucus.
In 2013, she used her experience to create Hardwired Global, an organization that addresses the root causes of religious conflict and works to defend the rights of the oppressed. She has testified before the U.S. Congress, the United Nations, and the African Union, and has published several articles and books related to her work on human rights and religious freedom.
Tina was raised near her mother’s large, extended family in Virginia where her father founded a medical practice and her mother ran a midwifery practice. Her parents, both second-generation descendants of Mexican and Czech immigrants and both Air Force Veterans, influenced Tina’s passion for service, freedom, and work with people worldwide. Tina lives in Richmond with her daughter, Abigail.
