After its inaugural 2017 Los Angeles summit, Teen Vogue is now set to hold its second event in New York, dubbed the Teen Vogue Summit: Turn Up. The summit will bring activists, politicians and industry leaders together to discuss and debate the ways teens can take action on issues important to them. The three-day event will feature headline speakers including Cecile Richards -- outgoing president of Planned Parenthood -- former Vice President Al Gore, activist Dolores Huerta, actress and comedian Jessica Williams and Virginia representative Danica Roem.
The Teen Vogue Summit: Turn Up clearly has a focus on political action, which should come as no surprise as the magazine has increased its political coverage in the wake of the 2016 election. This political focus has been noticed by readers around the world and Teen Vogue has been praised in the past few years for its unabashed political views and support of teens getting more involved with the political sphere. The Teen Vogue Summit: Turn Up will give the magazine another opportunity to aid teens with political inclinations and will aid them in enacting change around the world.
