 I work primarily with elementary but these are folks that I follow in Secondary math methods and modeling with a focus on social justice.

Also last year I went to MSRI on Critical Issues in Mathematics Education 2019: Mathematical Modeling in K-16: Community and Cultural Contexts and enjoyed these specific presenters work on Math modeling and social justice
Panel 3: Equity and Social Justice Theoretical Frameworks to Move us Forward in Developing a vision for MM Education
Filiberto Barajas-López (University of Washington), Laurie Rubel (The University of Haifa; Brooklyn College, CUNY), Ksenija Simic-Muller (Pacific Lutheran University)- you can watch this clip https://www.msri.org/workshops/919/schedules/24932 presentation

Of course, I also use Rico Gutstein’s work as well!

Here are some ready use tasks as well from Mathalicious-
