WE Day events across the globe celebrate young people who are making a difference in their communities—they’re each doing their part to change the world. These star-studded pep rallies are infused with music, inspirational stories, and calls to action to get young people motivated to take part in positive social change in their own neighborhoods.

If you’ve never experienced one, we have a treat for you: watch the 2019 WE Day special at 8 p.m. EDT/7 p.m. CDT, Friday, Aug. 9 on ABC.

The hour-long, commercial-free broadcast features Neil Patrick Harris, Selena Gomez, Joe Jonas, Natalie Portman, Chance the Rapper, and musical performances from Pentatonix and Meghan Trainor. The Allstate Foundation, which is committed to helping young people finding their voice, is the title sponsor for the special.
