PRAISE FOR Allies and Advocates

“A must-read for anyone curious about how to contribute towards a more equitable society. Amber simply and effectively provides historical events in context and arms us with necessary vocabulary, concepts, and steps for all of us to act, ally, and advocate in service of the marginalized. Why? Because black lives matter too, because we all have some privilege that we can choose to turn into power to uplift the underrepresented and dismantle oppressive systems, because of our shared humanity.”
—LYNN WONG, Senior Director II, Global Logistics, Walmart Inc.

With every page, Amber paints a portrait of what true inclusion looks like; whether it’s applied to the workplace, or to one’s personal life. The authenticity of Amber’s delivery is not only easy to digest, but also informative and has something every person can take away regardless of background, race, ethnicity, gender, age, or experience. Awesomely, fantastic work!”
