“I’m incredibly inspired by the accomplishments of today’s young people and their ambition to change the world for the better,” Neil Patrick Harris said in the announcement. “This new generation deserves to be celebrated for all the positive impactful change they are making and I’m very happy to be a part of the celebration by hosting WE Day California.”

The talent lineup for the event has yet to be released, but Demi Lovato, Selena GomezNick Jonas and Alessia Cara have all attended in the past.
