About Me

Amita Swadhin is an LA-based, NYC-bred educator, storyteller, activist and consultant dedicated to fighting interpersonal and institutional violence against young people. She believes change makers have a responsibility to involve directly-affected constituents in crafting solutions to social problems, and that these solutions must include an intersectional analysis of oppression, power and privilege. Her commitments and approach to this work stem from her experiences as a queer woman of color, daughter of immigrants, and survivor of child abuse.
