WE Day Recap

by Leora Heilbronn

It’s difficult not to walk away from WE Day feeling invigorated and wanting to create a change not only in yourself but in the world as well. The 10th annual one-day event (started by Craig and Marc Kielburger) brought together inspirational speakers and thousands of Toronto kids to help bring awareness of multi-faceted cultural issues such as missing Indigenous women, climate change, homelessness and poverty. Though surprise speaker Prince Harry (in town for the Invictus Games) won the hearts of the packed Air Canada Centre crowd, it was appearances by former Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-Moon, as well as #GirlLove advocate Lilly Singh and George Takei that had the kids on their feet and in tears.
