“The most powerful tool we have is our voice.” – Amanda Nguyen

Harvard graduate Amanda Nguyen is the CEO and founder of Rise, a social movement accelerator that teaches grassroots organizing. She helped draft the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights – one of just a handful of bills in U.S. history to pass unanimously through Congress – following her painful experience navigating the justice system as a rape survivor. Nguyen has been recognized on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 and Time magazine’s 100 Next lists, and was named one of InStyle’s 50 Badass Women of 2020 and Foreign Policy’s leading global thinkers of 2016.
