Isaac Bean - Columbus
Isaac Bean (he/him/él) focuses on developing empirically supported strategies to improve the lives and liberties of his community members, centering intersectional justice, material conditions, trauma-responsive strategies, and effectively engaging with lived experiences. After experiencing youth homelessness in Boston, he studied Psychology & Political Science at The Ohio State University; there he fell in love with the community and has made Columbus home ever since. Last year he joined the Neighborhood Services Inc. Food Pantry to implement a network of support programs where he now proudly serves as the Director of Social Services. His experiences with homelessness, domestic violence, and mental health systems focus his advocacy, while always remembering how many social problems are created by ignoring the material needs of the masses. In his free time, you’ll find him playing Dungeons & Dragons, engaging someone with passionate disagreements, or chipping away at his long list of political theory.
