In today's episode, I interviewed educational equity advocate, grassroots organizer, and violinist Alanna Li. She is the founder of the nonprofit Lifting Lives, has mobilized thousands of activists, has managed projects allocating tens of thousands of dollars to a variety of great causes. In addition to Lifting Lives, Alanna contributed to the Jon Ossoff for Senate campaign, is a student ambassador to her city's human rights council, and toured in both Europe and North America for violin to use her art to spread awareness on poverty. We discuss Alanna's personal connection with activism and equity, how legislation can impact educational equity, and all the amazing work she has been doing through Lifting Lives. Check it out!
