Amber Wynne (she/her/hers) is a senior health science policy administration major, criminal justice minor, attending the illustrious Hampton University in Hampton, VA. As a health science student, Amber’s passion for activism extends into the healthcare and social organizing fields. Amber has the privilege of serving as the President of Hampton University Generation Action (HUGA), where she strives to organize, advocate and educate through a reproductive justice lens. Her advocacy work includes voter education, LGBTQ+ advocacy, Black-centered health education, as well as founding “The Period Project'' which aims to distribute free menstrual products to students at Hampton University. As an organizer on a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) campus, she currently manages the Emergency Reproductive Hotline. Through this hotline Amber distributes free emergency contraception, pregnancy tests, barrier methods, education resources, and menstrual products to students in need in the Hampton Roads area and nationwide. Amber has been a stronghold in student government since her freshman year as she has served in the Women's Caucus and the Student Government Association Senate where she served as the Diversity & Inclusion Chair. Most recently, Amber was elected by her peers to serve as the 76th SGA Vice President at Hampton University, where she is a part of the first ever all woman lead “Big 3” at her university. Outside of Hampton, Amber currently works under In Our Own Voice as a Next Generation Leadership Institute Fellow and the American Society for Emergency Contraception as a Student Advisory Committee Member. At PERIOD Amber currently serves as a Youth Advisory Council Member and Board of Directors Member, as the only HBCU student and the youngest Board member to serve. Amber has future aspirations of becoming a champion for healthcare to combat the rising Black maternal mortality rate within the United States, in addition to running for local or state office.
