About Amber Lyon | @AmberLyon

Amber Lyon is a three-time Emmy Award-winning journalist, author, filmmaker, and photographer, who is obsessed with hackers, human and animal rights, and revolutions. She is the founder of the investigative news site

Amber grew up in St. Louis, MO, and attended the University of Missouri School of Journalism. While a student, Amber produced Battered Justice, a three-part series on the judicial system’s response to domestic violence offenders. Amber uncovered a judge who was illegally charging domestic violence victims who were trying to protect their children from abusers, resulting in thousands of dollars in Guardian ad litem and court fees. The series earned her an SPJ Heart of America Award and Missouri Broadcasters’ Association Certificate of Merit.

Upon graduation with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, Amber moved to Tucson where she covered immigration and drug cartel border issues for the NBC affiliate, KVOA. While at KVOA, Amber earned three Emmy Awards and an Edward R. Murrow award.

Amber joined CNN in June 2010. She was the only reporter to broadcast live while scuba diving in a HAZMAT suit so she could report from below the surface of the water in the Gulf of Mexico during the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster. Her reporting contributed to CNN winning a Peabody Award for coverage of the spill.

Lyon has also reported extensively on domestic child sex trafficking. In 2010, she investigated the sex trafficking of minors on the online classified site, Craigslist. Days after her report aired on CNN, a letter signed by Attorney Generals representing 17 states quoted findings from Lyon’s report in a letter to Craigslist demanding the closure of their Adult Services section. Less than a month after the investigation aired, Craigslist shut down their Adult Services section in the U.S. and has since closed the section worldwide. Lyon was honored with a prestigious Gracie Award for women in media and a nominated as a finalist for a Livingston Award for Young Journalists. Lyon also reported for and co-produced a documentary on child sex trafficking entitled Selling the Girl Next Door.

Lyon has a passion for exposing human rights violations against protesters during revolutions. For her documentary, iRevolution, she examines social media’s critical role in galvanizing revolutions and exposing human rights abuse in Egypt, Tunisia, and Bahrain. iRevolution won a 2012 New York Festivals International Television and Film Gold World Medal Award and Lyon was nominated as a Livingston Award Finalist for the documentary.

Lyon continues to expose ongoing cases of excessive use of police force against journalists and protesters in the U.S. She was crushed underneath a crowd in Chicago, directly shot at with less lethal weapons in Anaheim, and forced to inhale pepper spray more times than she can count, all while using submersion journalism to photo-document protesters in the U.S.

In November 2013, Amber published her first book. Peace, Love, and Pepper Spray, which chronicles modern protesting in America. “I hope the photos in Peace, Love, and Pepper Spray provide readers with the strength and inspiration to stand up against rampant corruption and revolt,” says Lyon.

“Whether you care about economic and social justice, the growing surveillance state, militarization of the U.S. police, or equality when it comes to topless sunbathing, the beauty of protest is that anyone can do it – all it takes is a little passion. I only hope that the threat of pepper spray will never prevail over the voice of the American people.”
