In the peak of an era of protests and longing for social justice, WE Day is returning to Southern California with a star studded lineup.
Selena Gomez, Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Richie will speak at the event alongside March for Our Lives organizers and a handful of Parkland students.
“I’m constantly inspired by the determination in every single student at WE Day—the energy they bring is unforgettable,” said Gomez in a statement. “This is my sixth WE Day and I can’t wait to share words of encouragement with thousands of young leaders who have accomplished so much worth celebrating. This generation is changing the world and I’m humbled to be a part of this special day with them.”
The one-day event, which is free to thousands of student activists, notes on their website that “standing in a stadium full of change-makers will reaffirm your belief that a better world is possible.”
WE Day takes place at the Forum in Los Angeles on April 19, and will be broadcast on ABC August 17 at 8 p.m. EST.
