Just speaking to the political experience of the moment is enough to catch fire and connect people, he said, adding that he thought “Glory to Hong Kong” was “powerful.”

“Sometimes a photo, comic or a song can spread out the message even more usefully than a long article,” he said.

Youth Day August 12

Youth Day is 12 August!

World Pulse suggests: The greatest force for global change is growing up before our eyes. This Youth Day speak out in support of your daughters, your nieces, and girls everywhere. Let’s ensure that the voices of our future are poised to lead and thrive.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Write a letter to a girl in your life—or to your younger self. What advice would you give her?
  • Are you an advocate for girls? Tell us about your work, your successes, and your challenges.
  • Share a story about the challenges girls in your community face, and how we might address them.
