Global Citizen, the world’s foremost international advocacy organisation dedicated to ending extreme poverty NOW, introduced its newest ambassadors today. Bill Nye, Billy Porter, Charlie Puth, Connie Britton, and Danai Gurira will join the international advocacy organisation alongside long-term Ambassadors Hugh Jackman, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Usher, John Legend, Rachel Brosnahan, and others to inspire their fans to take action and leverage their voices for a world free of extreme poverty, achieving impactful and lasting results.
Around the last decade, Global Citizen has collaborated with musicians and entertainers to initiate and support campaigns to end extreme poverty, to call on world leaders to act, and to bring global citizens from all around the world together to effect real change.
“The ongoing commitment of Global Citizen’s Artist Ambassadors and Advocates has been integral to the growth and impact of our movement, and we’re thrilled to introduce Bill Nye, Billy Porter, Charlie Puth, Connie Britton, and Danai Gurira as our newest ambassadors,” said Katie Hill, Senior Vice President of Music, Entertainment, & Artist Relations at Global Citizen. “The most pressing issues confronting our planet, such as climate change, equity for girls and women, and the global food crisis, necessitate drastic action and immediate change.” We look forward to continue our collaboration with these ambassadors to develop our global citizen network, create action and effect, and show people all over the world how taking action can make a difference.”
These new ambassadors have joined Global Citizen just in time for the launch of their current campaign, Power Our Planet: Act Today. Save Tomorrow, a global initiative to raise crucial funds for developing countries to combat climate change and extreme poverty. Power Our Planet will mobilise millions of global citizens throughout the world to take action, raise their voices, and call on world leaders to demand urgent global financial reform in order to free up the monies needed to build a sustainable, fair, and just society.
