She has a law degree from Berkeley Law and has practiced as Senior Counsel in a firm, founded non-profits, and led educational programs, initiatives, and social enterprises. Amelia is currently conducting research and developing curriculum on the role of the lawyer in advancing corporate social responsibility, an initiative which she founded at Berkeley Law. An eternal optimist, Amelia believes in the power of collective action and looks forward to building the wall-of-us together.

Kara Ganter

Kara is a lawyer, technophile, and pragmatist. Kara has journalism and law degrees from the University of Wisconsin, and over a decade of experience in higher ed administration, program development, communications, and instructional design. She served as Program Manager at Google and special prosecutor for the DA’s office in Wisconsin. Kara grew up in rural Wisconsin, where it is not polite to talk about politics, but she knows that liberal values are still strong in the Midwest and is passionate about empowering the liberal voices of the Heartland.

Each of our team members represent their own views and not those of their employers. In addition to our core team we rely on a network of volunteers comprised of experts in law, policy, communications, technology, and media. If you would like volunteer your skills to help build this big, beautiful wall-of-us, please reach out.
