My Guest: Scott Hechinger
Scott Hechinger is the Founder and Director of Zealous, a national initiative that activates trains, and supports state and local public defenders in partnership with local organizations, the people and communities defenders represent, with and artists, to leverage storytelling and new media advocacy strategies to break through the noise, complicate prevailing narratives and end mass criminalization. Zealous was an outgrowth of Scott’s work as a public defender for close to a decade, first at Partnership for Children’s Rights representing low-income families and children in special education litigation, and then at Brooklyn Defender Services representing people charged with crimes who couldn’t afford an attorney.
