Do you want to know what I found the most inspiring part of the 2015 Global Citizen Festival?

It was hearing the awe from my parents, friends, and other global citizens as they watched countries, world leaders, celebrities, artists, and 60,000 global citizens commit to share and take action on the Global Goals. I received calls and Facebook messages from friends I had not talked to in years who were inspired that  92,061,708 lives are set to be affected from commitments made by world leaders at the 2015 Global Citizen Festival. This act of reaching out reminds me of the power each one of us, global citizens, has on one another.

So enjoy these photos from the festival and please share the message of the Global Goals with everyone you know.

Go to TAKE ACTION NOW and send a Tweet to let the world know we are not a generation of bystanders. We are Global Citizens.
