About Amanda

Amanda Nguyen — a courageous survivor, tenacious advocate and internationally-acclaimed social entrepreneur who fights for justice and changes laws on behalf of survivors of sexual assault and abuse —joins us in conversation about the change we can make when we all raise our voices together.

Amanda Nguyen is an internationally acclaimed social entrepreneur, a 2019 Nobel Peace Prize nominee and the CEO and founder of Rise, a social movement accelerator, where she teaches grassroots organizing. Amanda is also an expert advisor on the Chloé Sustainability Board and her 2021 viral video ignited world-wide coverage on anti-Asian hate crimes and is credited as a pivotal moment for the Stop Asian Hate movement.

Amanda has penned her own civil rights into existence and unanimously passed the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights, after having to navigate the broken criminal justice system after her own rape. She has trained hundreds of activists using her theory of organizing, “Hopeanomics,” to pass 33 laws modeled off her federal law protecting more than 85 million sexual violence survivors. Recently, her viral video sparked national coverage on anti-Asian hate crimes.

In recognition of her work, Amanda has been named a Heinz Laureate, Nelson Mandela Changemaker, Forbes 30 Under 30, named to the Top 100 Leading Global Thinkers by Foreign Policy, Time 100 Next, Frederick Douglass 100, Marie Claire Young Woman of the Year and The Tempest’s #1 Woman of Color Trailblazer. Previously, Amanda was appointed by President Barack Obama to the United States Department of State as his Deputy White House Liaison and served at NASA. Amanda graduated from Harvard University.
