On Saturday, September 23, Global Citizen Festival will return to the iconic Great Lawn of Central Park in New York City to drive urgent action to End Extreme Poverty NOW. Joining Global Citizen will be headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Jung Kook of BTS, Anitta, Conan Gray, D-Nice, and Stray Kids.
For the first time in a generation, the number of people living in extreme poverty is rising. The 2023 Global Citizen Festival campaign takes aim at the major issues perpetuating extreme poverty, including the impacts of climate change on the Global South, the inequities affecting women and girls around the world, and the global hunger crisis, and will call on governments to protect and defend advocates everywhere. The campaign will unite millions of voices, amplified by the world’s biggest artists, to demand urgent action from world leaders gathering in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly in September.
