The series — hosted by collab partners Urban Outfitters and Teen Vogue — brought together three of the strongest young celebrity activist voices at the annual film, interactive media and music festival.
“I define activism as a need to know, help and explain,” Rowan said during her panel called “The Intersection of Art x Activism: Using your Voice as a Tool for Change,” which was moderated by Teen Vogue superstar editor Elaine Welteroth.
Yara spoke out about how powerful voices of her generation really are. “We are creating our own cannon — we are in charge of how we will be viewed by future generations,” she said.
Lauren joined Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, founder of Muslim Girl, to speak on the topic “People Aren’t Illegal: The Importance of Immigration and Asylum.”
This is just another awesome example of young stars using their celebrity for good. Way to go, ladies!
