Azure Savage is a black trans man in his senior year of high school. He wrote You Failed Us as a response to the racial injustice within the education system. After releasing the book, Savage has started to pursue speaking opportunities, workshops, and meeting directly with people working in Seattle Public Schools. He is working towards creating more understanding of the harm caused to students of color in order to inform actions taken by the district. Aside from book-related opportunities, Savage also has a strong voice at his high school around sexual assault education. All of his interests come from personal experience which creates an endless source of fuel.
