Linda Chavez Biography

Linda Chavez is president of the Becoming American Initiative. She wrote a weekly syndicated column for three decades that appeared in newspapers across the country, is a contributor to daily online publication The Bulwark, and participates weekly in The Bulwark’s podcast “Beg to Differ.” Chavez authored “Out of the Barrio: Toward a New Politics of Hispanic Assimilation” (Basic Books 1991), which the Denver Post described as a book that “should explode the stereotypes about Hispanics that have clouded the minds of patronizing liberals and xenophobic conservatives alike.” National Review described Chavez’s memoir, “An Unlikely Conservative: The Transformation of an Ex-Liberal” (Basic Books 2002), as a “brilliant, provocative, and moving book.” In 2000, Chavez was honored by the Library of Congress as a “Living Legend” for her contributions to America’s cultural and historical legacy. In January 2001, Chavez was President George W. Bush’s nominee for Secretary of Labor until she withdrew her name from consideration.

Chavez was the Republican nominee for U.S. Senator from Maryland in 1986. In 1992, she was elected by the United Nations’ Human Rights Commission to serve a four-year term as U.S. Expert to the U.N. Sub-commission on the Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities.

Chavez was also editor of the prize-winning quarterly journal American Educator (1977-1983), published by the American Federation of Teachers, where she also served as assistant to AFT president Al Shanker (1982-1983) and assistant director of legislation (1975-1977).
