Amber Walker

Deputy Director for Movement Building
Sheriffs for Trusting Communities/Communities for Sheriff Accountability

Amber Walker is a native of St. Louis has worked in social justice work for over 12 years and in the criminal legal reform space for 5 years. In her current work in sheriff reform, she leads and facilitates a national coalition whose mission is to reimagine a world where public safety isn’t centered around law enforcement or the sheriff. Amber has a deep desire for communities of color to experience true public safety. Her hope is to continuously work to restore communities impacted by oppressive systems or institutions that are harmful to them. She loves exploration and ventures to other countries to immerse herself in new cultures to learn and eat good food as often as she can.
