PRA Welcomes Tarso Luís Ramos as PRA's new Research Director
Tarso Luís Ramos joined PRA in May as our new director of research. A longtime PRA colleague and collaborator, Tarso has been a researcher and writer on right-wing groups since 1991. As director of the Wise Use Public Exposure Project at the Western States Center, he led efforts to counteract anti-union and environmental campaigns in the western United States.
Tarso's writings on the Wise Use and property rights movements have appeared in various publications, including the book Eyes Right!, published by Political Research Associates. From 2000-2005 he directed Western States Center's racial justice program, which resists racist public policy initiatives and supports the base-building work of progressive people of color-led organizations.
Tarso spent 2005 and the first half of 2006 living and working with social movements in Brazil, including the Landless Rural Workers Movement (MST)and the Black Movement (Movimento Negro). His interests include immigration and the rise of "colorblind" ideology. Look for his work on these and other topics in future PRA publications, including The Public Eye. PRA is excited about Tarso's diverse intellectual background and experience producing research to support progressive grassroots organizing.
