The Hegemony Project

It’s no secret that we live in a society where the odds are stacked unevenly. A select group of powerful people use their position to benefit themselves with more wealth, more privilege and more power.

And everyone else is shut out, left to fight amongst each other for the resources that remain — and are expected to be grateful for it.

Some might shrug and say life is unfair. But not us.

At The Hegemony Project, we call out injustice and inequity in the political, educational and cultural systems.

Learn with us, work with us and help make the world a better place for everyone.


Hegemony is a powerful unseen, force in our culture.

And that’s exactly why it’s hard to understand and recognize– at first.
