Today the world’s largest youth empowerment event, We Day, will make its official debut in California at the Oracle Arena featuring Seth Rogen, Selena Gomez, Magic Johnson, Orlando Bloom, J.Cole and Big Sean to engage and inspire 16,000 youth from over 400 schools across California to take action on local and global causes that are important to them.
An initiative of international charity and educational partner, Free The Children, We Day is taking the philanthropic world by storm with events in the US, Canada and the UK and is one of the world’s largest registered charities on Facebook with 3.8 million followers. This year alone, over 180,000 young people will come together in stadium gatherings to take part in this unprecedented educational initiative.
We Day California will bring some of the greatest social issues of today to the forefront, and provide the young people in attendance and tens of thousands more watching the live stream of the event online at www.ktvu.com. Selena will speak about the pressure young people face growing up.
