Co-founder and Executive Director Emma Lembke

Emma Lembke is a 20-year-old youth digital advocate at Washington University in St Louis working to address social media’s impact on younger generations. As a senior in high school, Lembke founded LOG OFF, a youth movement dedicated to uplifting and empowering youth to tackle the complexities of social media and its impact on their privacy, safety, and mental health. Emma also co-chairs Design It For Us–the only youth-led coalition pushing for online platforms and social media to be designed with kids and teens in mind, rather than as an afterthought. Her efforts have been covered by numerous media outlets including the New York Times, 60 Minutes, CBS, MTV, npr, The Hill, and Bloomberg. Her favorite unplugging activity is embroidery!
