Amber Amour

Sex Educator & Founder of Creating Consent Culture

Amber Amour is a renowned writer, speaker, human rights activist, and the Founder of#StopRapeEducate. Born and raised in Akron, OH, Amber has always had a passion for social justice.

Influenced by her mother, Amber became enthralled with activism after attending her first peace rally at age twelve. That same year, Amber experienced a personal injustice when she was sexually abused by a neighbour.

After graduating from high school, Amber relocated to Paris, France and attended the University of Paris La Sorbonne. Five years later, she graduated Suma Cum Laude, receiving her Bachelor’s degree in French as a Second Language. Upon her return to the United States, Amber delved deeply into the world of social justice. In 2012, she moved to New York City and began working for the Human Rights Campaign to pass same-sex marriage in Delaware, Rhode Island, and New Jersey.

In 2014 Amber founded #StopRapeEducate in response to the NYPD releasing her rapist without punishment. Shortly after her last assault, she took it to the streets armed with chalk and began writing educational messages about rape culture and consent.

Today, #StopRapeEducate inspires thousands around the world to speak up, reclaim their power, and live their best life possible. In less than a year, #StopRapeEducate has gained the support of millions, received recognition from President Obama, and has completed over 300 chalk art pieces to educate the public about this important issue.
