David Wallace

Author. Activist. Former Mayor. Father. Man of Faith.

David knows what it’s like to be the target of Public Shaming. In 2012, he suffered a very personal and public setback while in the midst of helping develop the downtowns of Waco, TX, Amarillo, TX and Joplin, MO. As a result, he and his family were the targets of extensive public shaming and additional personal and financial setbacks.

In an effort to help others survive public shaming, and perhaps even make amends for the damage caused, David set out to tell his story, and the story of others, who have had their lives turned upside down by our current “cancel culture” … a culture of online shaming that David predicted in his 2008 book “One Nation Under Blog.” As a result of this cancel culture, David learned resilience is the key to redemption. Today, he’s on a mission to help others find their way from Shame to Triumph.
