Amandla Stenberg, Freida Pinto, Halima Aden, and Andie MacDowell hold “Signs For Hope” in Harper Bazaar‘s September 2018 Issue photographed by Victor Demarchelier.

 

Amandla Stenberg on the unique insight into the current national debate about gun control after starring in The Hate U Give: “We must continue to engage with these personal narratives. Empathy will drive us toward change.”

 

 

Freida Pinto on using her voice for change and empowerment of girls: “In so many parts of the world, the cycle of misogyny continues to undermine the crucial role that women play in building a community, a country, and an economy. Knowledge is power, and if you give me a platform I will use it.”

 

 

Halima Aden, who was born in Kakuma, a refugee camp in northwestern Kenya, on advocating or children around the world: “When I was growing up, I often didn’t know where my next meal was coming from. A child in need knows no politics. It is my responsibility and moral duty to be a voice for those who can’t be heard.”

 

 

Andie MacDowell on raising awareness about the role trees play in moderating climate change: “After living in Montana, surrounded by forests for more than 25 years, I’ve learned how important it is to preserve our natural resources. The National Forest System is one of the most efficient, readily available carbon sinks on earth.”
