Actor Activists to Attend Clinton Global Initiative

One of the premiere events of the year for celebrity activists is the Clinton Global Initiative, where world leaders, nonprofit CEOs and humanitarians gather to find solutions to the world’s problems. The CGI this year, which starts Tuesday and runs through Thursday, has a lineup that includes Morgan Freeman, Geena Davis, Trudie Styler and Sting, and Mandy Moore.

President Obama will address the session on Wednesday, and one of the interesting highlights is expected to come in the closing plenary, when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and daughter Chelsea will have a one-on-one conversation.

Forest Whitaker will be among the panelists for a session on Thursday, “From Conflict to Creativity: Reducing Violence Through the Arts,” that also includes Irina Bokova, director-general, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); Diana Falchuk, Arts Connect Director, Hilltop Artists, Gary E. Knell, President and CEO, Sesame Workshop; Alvaro Maldonado, founder and director, Ballet Teatro Internacional; and Roberto Pacheco, special projects coordinator, AfroReggae.

The schedule is here.
