Global Citizen Week 2018 Opens in New York

On Sunday, Global Citizen broke open the silence in a major way with a high-energy, inspiring event at Riverside Church that featured everything from slam poetry and interpretive dance to gospel singing.

Organized and produced by Victoria Fortune, “Breaking the Silence” brought together faith leaders, musicians, and activists to reflect upon King’s legacy. It was the first event as part of a week full of cultural activities in the first-ever Global Citizen Week, leading up to the annual Global Citizen Festival on Sept. 23 in Central Park.
