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

The CEO and founder of Rise, a social movement accelerator that teaches grassroots organizing, Amanda Nguyen helped draft the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights. Her 2021 viral video ignited worldwide coverage on anti-Asian hate crimes and is credited as a pivotal moment for the Stop Asian Hate movement. 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.
