”And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds; are immune to your consultations, they are quite aware of what they are going through.David BowieChanges, 1971
#DearAdultWorld was born from repression, from pain, from the hearts and minds of young, passionate people longing for a platform to amplify their voices. #DearAdultWorld is that platform. It’s simple: we want teens to be heard, and adults to listen.
#DearAdultWorld is broken up by societal issue, issues that we feel our generation is uniquely qualified to tackle. Our generation is more connected, informed, and much louder than those of the past. We were raised with smartphones in hand, eyes and ears open to struggles far beyond our own. It is now time to enact change using our long silenced voices.
