Celebrities to join March of Our Lives advocates for WE Day
Selena Gomez and Jennifer Aniston are among many Hollywood heavyweights who have decided to attend WE Day in Southern California on April 19, according to E News.
The stars will be standing beside the March for Our Lives organizers and Parkland High School Students Jacyln Corin and Cameron Kasky to celebrate and honor their accomplishments.
Gomez has attended six WE Day celebrations in the past few years and is looking forward to another opportunity to share words of encouragement and celebration with the many young leaders who have made a positive change in society.
“I’m constantly inspired by the determination in every single student at WE Day. The energy they bring is unforgettable,” Gomez told E News.
WE Day is a celebration to honor young people who are making a difference within their communities. Over the years WE Day has become the largest youth empowerment event held in the country. According to WE.org, WE Schools is an educational program that encourages young people to lead with confidence in order to transform the world around them.
The event is estimated to bring together over 16,000 students and educators from across the state to celebrate a common goal. The event will include speakers, innovative thought leaders and performances by celebrities as well as appearances from the WE co-founders, Craig and Marc Kielburger.
Southern Methodist University’s school motto, “World Changers Shaped Here” is something to take into account when reflecting upon the WE Movement and what it stands for. SMU students have continuously worked hard in order to make a difference on their campus through organizations such as One Love and Not on My Campus, allowing the entire school community to get involved and ultimately make a difference.
