Amber ButtsPractice, not perfection
Amber Butts is a storyteller, cultural strategist, grief worker and scholar of delight. Amber’s practices are rooted in building reparative, joyful and interdependent relationships between the living Earth and all of its beings. Her role as a steward, listener and beginner have taught her that spaces centered in tenderness, nuance, and care are freedom playgrounds. Her favorite freedom practice is observing the ways non-human beings organize to confront power and protect one another. Though her writing has been featured in dozens of publications around the world, her most cherished, sacred identity is being Audrie Lowe’s granddaughter. Amber lives in Oakland and is currently at work on an intergenerational speculative fiction novel.
