Founders & Elders

At the time of SACNAS’ founding in 1973, there were only a handful of Chicano/Hispanic and Native American scientists in the United States. Today, our movement towards true diversity is 28,000 strong. Our founders were driven to build and sustain a diverse scientific workforce. We honor their legacy and continue their work.
