The day began with Yara Shahidi in conversation with Tory. At the Embrace Ambition Summit, the 18-year-old actress talked about her new initiative, Eighteen x 18, to encourage young people to vote. “Politics isn’t marketed to my generation,” said Shahidi, who started Eighteen x 18 after learning that only 52% of Americans voted. “Equity can be achieved only when we acknowledge that everyone has inalienably been given the right to exist and the right to thrive.”
