Established in 2020, Zealous is a national organization in support of local initiative. Moving public defender advocacy outside of the court. Zealous trains public defenders how to support public advocacy initiatives in collaboration with grassroots organization. We use high level artistry, artistry in the broad sense of the word meaning any platform that allows for creative self expression can be considered artistry including social media and op-eds, to bring to light social justice issues that normally will not be identified merely by considering the facts. The facts do not tell the whole story, but artistry can provide contexts for the facts.
