Global Citizen will return to NY next month with a free festival, and this year's lineup will be headlined by the legendary Stevie Wonder.
Since last year's Festival, Global Citizen has taken the movement and action-based model to Canada, India, and most recently on the eve of the G20 summit to Hamburg, Germany. There will also be special guest sets from Pharrell Williams, Big Sean, Andra Day and Alessia Cara. Global Citizen encourages users to "tweet at world leaders to end the toilet crisis", sign a petition to "tell corporate and world leaders why investing in girls' learning is key", and other actions to speak truth to power.
"When we commit ourselves to life issues, we are showing love of the Most High", Wonder said in a press release.

A portion of Highway 44 between Hokah and Caledonia was closed for almost twelve hours as investigators gathered evidence. La Crescent police officers do not use body cameras, although the department is in the early planning stages to add them.
"We're grateful to be a part of this year's Global Citizen Festival", says Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong. "American aid programs make a significant difference in the betterment of lives at home and around the world, and we should all want these programs to become stronger, not weaker".
It's likely that The Chainsmokers inclusion has something to do with their recent collaboration with Chris Martin and Coldplay.
Produced by Emmy victor Ken Ehrlich, the full concert will air during a live simulcast on MSNBC and MSNBC.com, courtesy of MSNBC and Comcast NBCUniversal.
Every time you take action, you earn points, and when you earn enough, you'll be entered into a lottery to score two free tickets to the festival. All the info's on the Global Citizen website.
