Seventeen magazine, the brand dedicated to celebrating all of the moments in a teen’s life, today released a special issue commemorating last month’s nationwide March for Our Lives event. In support of the March, Seventeen chartered a bus to transport 30 teenage activists to participate, and through this special issue, continues to support the movement that is so close to its readers’ hearts.

The issue features original content and curated photos to help readers remember this pivotal moment, while continuing to shine a light on the teens who are using their voices to bring attention to the movement. In conjunction with the issue’s launch, a donation will be made to the “Everytown For Gun Safety” organization.

Highlights inside the special issue, which retails at $12.99, 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 about why they chose to participate
  • 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 who have used their voices to enact change, and to encourage others to use theirs.

Seventeen’s Executive Editor Joey Bartolomeo is available for interviews to speak about the issue, and why Seventeen and its 20 million teenage readers are so invested in this movement.
