Juanita “Juana” Chávez is the daughter of Richard Chávez – brother of César Chávez – and Dolores Huerta. Growing up in the Farm Worker’s Movement, Juana joined her family on the picket lines as soon as she learned to walk.

As a young woman, she interned at the National Office of the Feminist Majority, in Washington DC. She studied and worked in San Francisco where she served as a foster parent and a mentor for “at-risk” youth. She provided guidance and resources to youth groups who successfully organized to demand culturally representative curriculum and increased funding for education. She earned a BA in Spanish from San Francisco State University.

She began her career as a professional educator, teaching children in the inner-city public schools of San Francisco and Los Angeles for over a decade. She was an active member of UTLA.
