Apr 29th, 2022 by marioveen
Ian Partman (he/they) is a 19-year old student, writer, activist, and artist based in New York City. He is the founder of Ignite Collective, a national organization of young activists who work to resist police violence through mutual aid and direct action. He currently works at the Brennan Center for Justice in the Office of the President. Their academic research explores how histories of exclusion within everyday institutions shape contemporary forms of racial violence, especially within spaces of higher education. Ian is also working on a forthcoming monograph that explores Black childhood in the age of #BlackLivesMatter. You can find him, and more of his work, at ianpartman.com.
