Global Citizen Festival 2017
September 23, 2017Free – $350
FOR FREEDOM. FOR JUSTICE. FOR ALL.
Global Citizens are taking a stand for freedom, for justice, for all.
From Sept. 17-23, we’re turning NYC into a arena of advocacy, with dozens of events and activations uniting Global Citizens to learn, take action, and see world leaders commit to deliver a world without extreme poverty by 2030.
Global Citizen week coincides with the annual leaders meeting of the United Nations, kicks off at the Riverside Church on the Upper West Side with an event to mark the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Beyond The Dream” poverty speech, and culminates at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park on Saturday, Sept. 23.
Join us at conferences and concerts, on the streets, in shops, and in churches to show our leaders that the movement for freedom, justice, and equality has never been stronger.
