Chavez is the author of Out of the Barrio: Toward a New Politics of Hispanic Assimilation, which chronicles the untold story of Hispanic progress and achievement and addresses the implications of bilingual education, voting rights, immigration, and affirmative action. The Denver Post said that the book "should explode the stereotypes about Hispanics that have clouded the minds of patronizing liberals and xenophobic conservatives alike."
Many know Chavez from her weekly column which appears in dozens of newspapers. She writes often for many other publications, including the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, The New Republic, Commentary, and Reader's Digest. She also makes regular appearances on "Nightline," "The McLaughlin Group," "CNN & Co.," "Equal Time," and "The News Hour with Jim Lehrer."
Chavez has held a number of political positions, among them White House Director of Public Liaison (1985) and director of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (1983-85). She was editor of the prize-winning quarterly journal of the American Federation of Teachers, American Educator (1977-83). She also served as U.S. Expert on the United Nations Subcommission on Human Rights (1992-96) and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Chavez currently sits on the Board of Directors for several non-profit organizations and corporations, including ABM Industries. She is working on her second book. -30-
