Investing in Women's Leadership
Deeds Not Words is dedicated to organizing and developing the leadership of young women through an intersectional framework, with a focus on how to make local change today.
Built on the belief that our stories are needed to address growing inequality, Deeds was created to bring the voices of women to spaces where they are often ignored or excluded. Utilizing the power of their stories, our Changemakers bring their lived experiences into public decision-making spaces, driving change through testimony, advocacy, and engagement.
Our Changemakers can shift policy and culture, and create a more supportive environment in which women can succeed and thrive, on their own terms. As a Co-Executive Director, Amber works everyday to ensure women are uplifted in every aspect of their lives.
