Seventeen magazine releases "March for Our Lives" special issue

Hitting newsstands today, Seventeen magazine released a special issue commemorating the March for Our Lives. This comes off the heels of Seventeen chartering a bus to bring 30 teenage activists to Washington DC for the march.

The issue features original content and curated photos to help teens, their parents, and readers remember this moment while continuing to shine a light on the teens using their voices to bring attention to the issue. Retailing at USD$12.99, Hearst will make a donation to Everytown for Gun Safety in conjunction with the launch.

Highlights inside the special issue include:

  • This is Not a Moment, it’s a Movement: A recap of the march, excerpts from the speeches, the messaging behind the movement, and what this means for teens and their futures.
  • Signs of the Times: A round-up of the best signs shown at rallies all over the country.
  • Voices of a Generation: Profiles of, and essays written by, Parkland student leaders, speakers from all over the country who inspired the world with their words and stories, and voices of the marchers—why they came to D.C.
  • Be Part of History: A history of past Washington D.C. rallies that made people stand up and take notice of human rights and suffering.
  • You Can Make a Difference: A “how-to” of ways that teens can let their voices be heard, even if they can’t vote.

Clean & Clear is the exclusive advertiser for the issue. The brand’s  “Be Loud. Be Clear. Be You.” campaign highlights teens that have used their voices to enact change, and to encourage others to use theirs.

  • The Mr. Magazine™ interview: Entertainment Weekly proves weekly magazine brands can stand strong on all platforms

    “I don’t just consider myself editor-in-chief of a weekly magazine, but of an entire content organisation. I became editor-in-chief a little over three years ago, and I remember when I was growing up, I felt that Entertainment Weekly set the agenda for that particular week’s conversation, like this is what we need to be psyched about in entertainment. So, I really tried to move that thought process into the 21st century. And I really want to give readers something on the cover of this magazine and inside the magazine that they can’t get on the internet, that they can’t find on anyone’s social media feed, because of what our access allows.” Henry Goldblatt, EIC, Entertainment Weekly
