We Are Family Foundation (WAFF) is honored to welcome Parkland teens Ariana Ali, Sarah Chadwick, Jack Macleod and Morgan Williams at its 2018 Celebration Gala on Friday, April 27 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.
WAFF’s Youth Ambassadors representing six countries will welcome these teens with a special presentation and a statement of solidarity.
In response to the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL on February 14, 2018, each of the four Parkland teens joining the evening have responded with their own platforms for positive change: Jack Macleod, Co-Founder of Students For Change; Ariana Ali, Outreach, Students for Change; Sarah Chadwick, “March For Our Lives” Speaker; Morgan Williams, Co-Founder, #StoriesUntoldUS.
“As a teen, I was an activist in the sixties,” said Nile Rodgers, Founder, We Are Family Foundation. “Not since that time have we seen a movement led by youth that has had the type of national and international impact that the Parkland teens have had. They are determined to save the lives of our children. WAFF works with global teens who are positively changing our world, and collectively we are honored to support and welcome the Parkland family into our family.”
Roger Daltrey, LL COOL J and Nile Rodgers & CHIC will perform live at the event.
