Hear from Andre how he has been a pioneering fashion activist challenging stereotypes and empowering youth through the Humanize My Hoodie campaign. This movement, which uses fashion to inspire social change, teaches young people essential skills, fostering independence and creativity. By designing hoodies that make powerful statements, Andre not only raises awareness but also creates a platform for marginalized voices. His initiative with Wright House equips future generations with the tools to navigate and impact the fashion industry sustainably, reflecting a commitment to environmental and social activism. This is fashion activism at its core, transforming how we interact with our world through clothing​​​​​​.
