"Young people are taking action every day to make the world a more inclusive space. I'm so inspired by the students breaking down barriers in equality and discrimination, this progress benefits all of us.
"The young people at WE Day UN are challenging stereotypes and empowering others to do the same, creating a global movement of equality and inclusivity."
Other key figureheads scheduled to attend include: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Martin Luther King III, Juan Manuel Santos, NAS, Jacob Tremblay, Ebro Darden, Ingrid Nilson, Kendrick Sampson, Princess Beatrice, Esera Tuaolo, John Barnitt, Cameron Kasky, David Robinson, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Monique Coleman, Celebrity Marauders, Sparsh Shah, The Clovers, Jaylynn Cortez, Hebh Jamal, Clare Morneau, Karina Perez, Haile Thomas and Spencer West.
