On January 24, 2018, over 100 creators, policy makers, and journalists came together to share inspiring stories and build meaningful connections at the YouTube Creators for Change Summit. From YouTube creators like Juanpa Zurita and Maha AJ to filmmaker Hassan Akkad to civil rights activist DeRay McKesson, these speakers demonstrated the power of video to open minds to new perspectives and instill empathy where before there was none.
The Summit marked another year of Creators for Change, through which we will continue to engage more creators in the program, arm the wider YouTube community with new tools and education on how to create change, and empower more young people to use their voices to encourage positive social messages.
