Excerpt from Heat Street
Written by Andrew Stiles
Lena Dunham is taking some time out from her post-election Spirit Quest in the Arizona wilderness to offer advice to teenage private school attendees looking for ways to engage in “safe, constructive” activism in Donald Trump’s America.
“Recently I received an email from a 14 year old girl, heartbroken by the election,” Dunham wrote in an online post. “She goes to private school with wealthy kids, but feels alone, powerless and scared.”
Dunham offered some tips for the how aspiring teen activists can make a difference in their communities, including by “starting a feminist group at your school” and bringing a “list of grievances to your teachers and principals.”
