We Day California Announces Lineup + Details!
We Day is set to hit the “Fabulous” Forum on April 25 in Calfornia. With stadium-sized events across North America, the UK and the Caribbean, WE Day
returns to California bringing together 16,000 extraordinary students and educators who have made a difference in
their local and global communities. Together they will enjoy a day of unforgettable performances, speeches, and fun with some of their favorite celebrities.
The best part? WE Day is free of charge to students and educators across the U.S. thanks to the
generous support of sponsors, led by National Co-Title Sponsor The Allstate Foundation and Unilever.
“Every year, WE Day leaves me feeling inspired and hopeful. The youth have an incredible positive and
passionate attitude for making real change in the world” says actress and multi-platinum recording artist,
Selena Gomez. “I’m so proud to celebrate young people’s year of social change and to remind them that
together, we are an unstoppable movement dedicated to a brighter and better tomorrow.”
More than a one-day event, WE Day is connected to the free, yearlong program WE Schools. Designed
to enhance a school or community’s existing social initiatives or spark new ones, WE Schools provides
participants with curriculum, educational resources and action campaigns, encouraging students to
further their curricular learning and develop life skills to succeed beyond the classroom. In the 2017/2018
school year, over 1260 schools and school groups across California improved the world through WE
Schools, volunteering over 1.4 million hours and raising more than $1,000,000 in support of over 660
global and local causes including bringing awareness to homelessness, food security, LGBTQ+ rights,
access to education, access to clean water in oversees communities and environmental issues.
