Working for peace and justice is nothing new for Zack Pitt-Smith. He won GVCP’s Young Peacemaker Award in the 1990’s.

Dear People Who Know Zack Pitt-Smith,
I thought you’d be interested in seeing this article about the honor band that Zack Pitt-Smith leads. Here’s what I wrote on Facebook:
A moment of hope in sad times—it made me cry when I read this. My family friend, amazing musician, and inspirational music teacher/band leader Zack Pitt-Smith is one of the band directors for the Honor Band, a band that brought honor to [Oakland Unified School District] … I am so proud of Zack’s students and proud of him for recognizing their freedom to express themselves. Please read the article to learn about hope for our future and the room for growth that insightful mentors can provide.
