A movement dedicated to

Social Issues, the People They Affect, and Real Solutions

AYG-cutout6

Amplify America is a movement that highlights social issues, the people affected by them, and the people working to find solutions to our nation’s most persistent problems. Amplifiers are people striving to live better lives, people considered advocates and experts in their field, everyday people who freestyle creative solutions to persistent social issues, and YOU — concerned individuals eager to make a difference through informed action and a diligent commitment to sustainable change.

  • Rural housing
  • Adult literacy
  • Community college

  • Higher education affordability & viability

  • Mental health
  • Elder care
  • Foster care
  • Domestic violence
  • Human trafficking
  • Restorative justice
  • …and more!
