What #AerieREAL Changemakers REALLY Are Made Of

Through the new #AerieREAL Changemakers Initiative, 20 inspiring individuals have been granted

By leading impactful projects such as building libraries in underserved regions, empowering incarcerated youth
through writing, shedding light on diverse stories and more, these activists and entrepreneurs continue to
serve as inspiring advocates in pushing humanity forward — this is what Changemakers are made of.
