Introducing the #AExMECouncil

Self-expression. Individuality. The power to change the world. Introducing the #AExMECouncil!

Inspired by the bold voices of young people like YOU, we’re introducing our first-ever advisory council of nine leaders from around the country, each a fearless champion for a better future.

AE will be supporting the advocacy work of each #AExMECouncil member AND learning from them, working hand-in-hand on every aspect of our business to make sure our practices and product are as game-changing as customers like you.

Over the next year, look for updates about our work together. We’ll be collaborating on ideas for Pride, mental health, sustainability, getting out the vote, charitable giving, and more.
