We envision a world free from extreme poverty. Now.

We are an action platform dedicated to achieving the end of extreme poverty, powered by a community of millions of Global Citizens who believe in one world, one people - where everyone has an equal chance to thrive. This is our world and the actions of one can have a profound impact on many. That's why we rally around the critical issues of climate change, poverty, and inequality.

This is our generation’s moment. It’s in our hands.

What Are Global Citizens?

Global Citizens are action takers and impact makers. Our mission is to end extreme poverty worldwide, now. Our voices inspire action to defend the planet, defeat poverty, and demand equity. We post, tweet, message, vote, sign, and call to influence leaders and citizens to act. The collective actions of our community can make a difference to end extreme poverty now.
