Giving activists the power to change laws

Global Business

Amanda Nguyen is a civil rights activist using a startup approach to affecting change. A traumatic personal experience lead Amanda to start her own non-governmental organization called Rise.

It began by pushing for legislative change to the way victims of sexual assault are treated, but now helps all people looking to change laws. Rise has helped pass over 27 U.S. laws and is working on more.

CGTN’s Karina Huber sat down with Amanda to talk about Rise.
