Amandla Stenberg: 'Our Generation is More Than Just a Hashtag'

Amandla Stenberg opens up about youth activism in this poignant op-ed piece for Teen Vogue.

The 17-year-old actress and activist talks about working with No Kid Hungry to tackle the harrowing statistic that one in fives kids in the U.S. can’t count on their next meal.

“Our generation is more than just a hashtag. We are the next generation of hunger leaders and advocates, taking a stand and not allowing our peers and families to go hungry,” Amandla wrote. “We are no different from any committed movement of passionate people who see a brighter future for generations to come. We just happen to talk about it in 140 characters or less. I’m encouraged to see my friends and peers use their online power for the better. They inspire me to stand up for all I care about.”
