Daniel Ramirez

I’m interested in analyzing ideas, viewpoints, institutions, and systems that affect our society, and proposing solutions incorporating a justice framework. I also enjoy urban geography, community development, architecture, and city planning.

I like to look at our society from a critical perspective, with an eye toward class and justice. I hope to make connections between our systems and institutions that better illuminate our social issues and the problems with solutions proposed by, for example, neoliberalism.
