AB Livewell's Amanda Brown is available for speaking engagements. She speaks on two important topics:
Removing Shame & Building Trust for the Criminally-Impacted
Violence in communities can be perpetuated by punitive measures, rather than restorative approaches. This talk emphasizes the importance of recognizing everyone's ability to contribute positively to society.
Bridging Grassroots & Systems Together
Sometimes there is a misconception that those in the field and those in systems are opposites. However, both are made up of human beings, and breaking down barriers and building trust is critical for effective programs and systems.
