Amber Martin is on the content team with SubCulture.

Her passions revolve around justice and talking about God, who loves justice. She desires to build awareness of injustices and cause dialogue, interaction, action and prayer over these injustices. Amber is also a full-time first grade teacher in the Florida Public Schools. She is in her 16th year of teaching and her love for justice was fueled by a student she had her first-year teaching, back in 2004. Her student said, “Ms. Martin, I know white people are mean. You are white. Can you make them change?” This question broke her heart and still breaks her heart. It causes her to look deeply at herself, her people, and examine how we (white people) are the problem. She has had the privilege of working in different areas of ministry for the last 19 years. Some of these include: small group leader, worship leader, children’s leader, founder of a pre-school, and prayer leader. Amber loves hanging out with her family.
