Educator and author Zachary Wright experienced a pivotal moment as a teacher that opened his eyes to the injustices inherent in our education system. In this podcast episode, Wright speaks candidly about that experience and how it motivated him to self-reflect, deepen his knowledge of educational inequity, and become a fierce proponent of hyperlocal activism.

Join us as we explore the content of Wright’s latest book, Dismantling a Broken System and the inspiration behind it. This empowering conversation covers crucial issues such as:

●      What hyperlocal activism is, and why it matters

●      How to identify the oppressor within oneself and confront negative biases to enact positive change

●      Why our education system was built to perpetuate injustice and what we can do about it
