And Prizeo’s latest Grand Prize winner, Jayme Thomas gets her (totally platonic) date with Kristen Bell!

The Fourth Estate Leadership Summit “is a conference for students and educators who want to meet the people, learn the skills, and gain the experiences that will help them make a difference in their own communities and around the world.”

At the event, Kristen Bell, Sophia Bush, Rachel Bilson, Adam Braun, Elizabeth Gore, Dan Pallotta, and more will take the stage before a live audience and via livestream at http://invisiblechildren.com/live to discuss issues promoting justice and basic human rights.

Just announced, Samantha Power, United States Ambassador to the United Nations will also be in attendance.

Described as 1/3 conference, 1/3 film festival and 1/3 concert (and don’t forget one big dance party!), attendees at the summit will hear presentations by thought-leaders in the arenas of social good, non-profits, world affairs, and activism, as well as hands-on workshops, interactive opportunities, live music and more.

Those who can’t attend in person can watch the live webcast here.

Two big announcements will also be made by Invisible Children during the summit:

  1. The Future of Invisible Children: including new educational initiatives for the classroom that will amplify Invisible Children’s human rights activism to more universal implications
  2. Commitment to Bring the LRA to Zero: proving to the world that this generation has the stamina and follow through to be held accountable for producing results.

The Fourth Estate seeks to empower attendees with the ideas, skills, and experience they need to make a difference in their own communities and world, building the largest ever global human rights network.

Also part of the event is the Common Goods Exchange, where top brands working to make the world a better place will share how and why they do what they do. Attendees will be able to actively engage with and learn from these brands and social good luminaries in an open and interactive forum. Brands featured at the Common Goods Exchange include: TOMS, charity:water, Pencils of Promise, Sevenly, Teach for America, ONE, United Nations Foundation, Rock the Vote, F Cancer, Keep a Breast, Do Something, Plant With Purpose, Raven + Lily, Sseko Designs, Mend and many others.

No matter where you’re at this weekend, join The Fourth Estate and tune in to hear the innovative, inspiring and life-changing messages from social dogooders and world changers.

About Invisible Children

Invisible Children, founded in 2004, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based on the belief that there is equal and inherent value in all human life. Our mission is to bring a permanent end to atrocities committed by Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) through an integrated four part model; media, mobilization, protection and recovery. We are focused on the LRA because they have been abducting children and committing atrocities in East and central Africa since 1987. For additional information please visit www.invisiblechildren.com
