BE THE GENERATION TO TAKE ACTION. 

Global Citizen is calling on YOU to take a stand, use your voice to make change and Be the Generation to Take Action.

From Sep 22 - 29, we are turning NYC into an arena of advocacy, with dozens of events and activations. We are uniting Global Citizens to learn, take action, and see world leaders commit to achieve the Global Goals for Sustainable Development and a world without extreme poverty by 2030.

Global Citizen Week coincides with the annual leaders meeting of the United Nations. We kick off at the historic Riverside Church on the Upper West Side celebrating the human rights leaders and movements who spoke up against injustice, and culminate at the iconic Global Citizen Festival in Central Park on Saturday, Sept 29.

Join us at conferences and concerts, on the streets, in shops, and in churches to show our leaders that the movement for change has never been stronger.

Be sure to check back as we add more events and opportunities for you to get involved!
