Amy is a fourth generation Californian, with deep roots in Sonoma County. After spending 12 years coordinating women’s health and violence prevention projects throughout California, Amy discovered digital storytelling and launched StoryCenter’s Silence Speaks initiative
, which since 2000 has used oral history, participatory media, and popular education strategies to support people in countries around the world as they’ve shared personal stories of gender, health, and human rights. She lives in Berkeley, where she continues to lead Silence Speaks and guide much of StoryCenter’s communication and outreach work.
