ACTIVISM IS THE NEW INFLUENCE

ACTIVISM IS THE NEW INFLUENCE

Have you noticed how politically charged Teen Vogue has become? Is your social feed awash with protests and talks to attend?  Well now the hotel world has made a stand too and it's whole heartedly embracing it. The Standard Hotel is leading this hospitality charge (as always!) and addressing the alternative facts of our Cheeto-in-Chief.  Earlier this month they renewed a commitment to common values, freedom of self expression and inclusiveness (see photos).

They are also nurturing a community of carers.  It was a cold night in NYC at the Standard High Line last week (warmth poured, courtesy of Yola Mezcal!). But that didn't stop Gotham coming out to support progressive values, as Instyle Ed-in-Chief announced the mag would be featuring five prominent women of the ACLU, in its next issue. Lykke Li, Kelsey Lu and Nancy Whang framed the night with a couple of spine-tingling performances (photo: Standard Culture).  Donate to ACLU .  

Ace Hotels jumped on the activism band wagon too.  They have offered to donate a portion of opening dollars, from their soon to launch Ace Chicago

It was the kind of night that gives us hope, that makes us feel as if we’re together and not lost, and that sent everyone off into the cold feeling that we are one.
