Amanda Nguyen is a civil rights activist, social entreprenuer, and CEO and founder of Rise, a nonprofit organization aimed to protect the civil rights of sexual assault and rape survivors. In 2013, Nguyen was raped while studying at Harvard University, and she faced tremendous challenges to preserve her rape kit. Nguyen founded Rise in 2014, and she wrote the Sexual Assault Survivors' Rights Act, a bill which passed in 2016. The legislation overhauls the process of how rape kits are processed in the United States and creates a bill of rights for all sexual assault and rape survivors.
