Luz Santana
Co-Director @Right Question Institute
Luz Santana, has spent 30 years as an advocate for students, parents, schools, and low-income communities. Luz helped develop the concept of Microdemocracy – the idea that low-income people can begin to participate in their ordinary encounters with public and publicly funded institutions. She is the co-author of Make Just One Change (Harvard Education Press, 2011) and Partnering with Parents. Luz has a B.A and M.A. from the Springfield College School of Human Services, and she was chosen as a Community Fellow at MIT. Her work is informed not only by her personal experience as a former welfare recipient, but also by lessons from people all over the world with whom RQI has worked for the past twenty years. In the course of her work, Santana has traveled the country and beyond as a presenter, facilitator, and keynote speaker — in English and Spanish. She has spoken at the NAIS People of Color Conference, ASCD Empower Conference, and Columbia University, among other engagements.
