Joana Chacon has been an educator in Boston and Seattle for over 10 years. The daughter of activist Salvadoran immigrant parents, she was instilled with a strong sense of civic action. Joana worked as a Martinez Foundation Fellow, studying race and equity in schools in the company of educators of color. She applied her learning as an educator, teaching English, Spanish Literature, and Multicultural literature, and most recently, in her role as co-executive director of Newton South High School’s Human Rights Council. Last summer, with a team of educators from across the nation, Joana grassroots organized the National Educator Anti-Racism Conference which brought together educators from all 50 states and 24 countries for a week of content area-specific sessions led by antiracist scholars.
