SACRAMENTO, CALIF. (January 16, 2014) -- Undefeated lightweight contender, 2012 U.S. Olympian and California Latino Water Coalition member JOSE RAMÍREZ woke up at 5:00 a.m. PT today for political roadwork He and Kings County Supervisor Richard Valle are leading a charter busload of fellow activists from his hometown of Fresno where they will join up with 1,000 farm workers, politicians and concerned and affected citizens to attend a water bond rally and news conference at the State Capitol Building in Sacramento, to get water released and allocated to Central California farmers.


The California Latino Water Coalition aims to help resolve the state’s water crisis and to promote economic growth in the Central Valley. The water crisis has depleted farm-related employment and reduced family income.

"Plain and simple, we need water in our area, it is the lifeline of the people and the economy," said Ramírez. "Now that Governor Brown has declared a drought emergency we need to meet with our legislators, face-to-face, and voice our concerns directly to them. Today, we intend to go door-to-door to everyone in the Capitol building to tell them the devastating effects our water crisis is having on the Valley community."

"Jose cares about his people, his community and where he is from. He wants to make a difference," said agent Rick Mirigian

Last November, Ramírez (7-0, 5 KOs), of Avenal, Calif., headlined a sold-out boxing event -- "Fight for Water" -- in his hometown area of Lemoore, Calif. which raised funds for struggling farm families in the Central Valley.
