As the world’s leaders gather in New York this month for the UN General Assembly, the Global Poverty Project is using this opportunity to educate the public and turn that knowledge into action. We encourage you to join the fight against global poverty—and help to build a movement that demands justice for the 1.3 billion people still living in extreme poverty.
In Central Park this Saturday (9/29), the organization is producing the largest syndicated charity concert in online and broadcast TV history. The Global Citizen Festival will feature performances by Neil Young with Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Band of Horses, K’Naan and more!
This concert will highlight and celebrate the progress made against extreme poverty, while bringing even more worldwide attention to the issue. Get inspired with your fellow global citizens and come together as one to urge world leaders to take action in ending this unnecessary injustice.
This international event will stream for FREE on Livestream during three exclusive screenings:
4:30 pm EDT, September 29
12:30 am EDT, September 30
8:30 am EDT, September 30
Find screening times in your time zone here.
