Citizenship

Superstars come together to be first generation to end extreme poverty

The 2015 Global Citizen Festival is a HUGE event. Hundreds of thousands of real-time actions are taken by tens of thousands of global citizens. World leaders are encouraged to take the stage in New York City’s Central Park on September 26th to share major commitments on behalf of their countries to aid in solving issues like hunger, health and gender inequality.  And today, this global movement is getting even more support: the 2015 Festival Host Committee!

The Festival already has plenty of talented and committed people including headliners Pearl Jam, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran and Coldplay. And lead hosts Stephen Colbert, CHIME FOR CHANGE co-founder Salma Hayek Pinault, Deborra-Lee Furness and Hugh Jackman, Kerry Washington and Olivia Wilde. But now that list is growing...

The Host Committee will include: Amani Toomer, Bill Nye, Bonnie Wright, Bridget Moynahan, Camren Bicondova, Colin Hanks, Connie Britton, Daymond John, and Erin Heatherton, along with Erin Richards, Eve Hewson, Freida Pinto, Gayle King, Isha Sesay, Jake Clemons, Jason Ralph, Katie Holmes, Laverne Cox, Malin Akerman, Miri Ben-Ari, Nev Schulman, Rachel Brosnahan, Shantell Martin, Soledad O’Brien, Sophia Bush, Tamzin Merchant, Tim Fain and Usher.

The special guests performing on stage include: Common, Tori Kelly, Sunidhi Chauhan and others.

The power of this group combined with the power of global citizens is key to making the Global Goals famous and achievable as world leaders can then be held accountable.
