A Movement to Eradicate Extreme Poverty

In September, Global Citizens, a social action platform dedicated to solving the world's biggest problems, turned NYC into an arena of advocacy, with dozens of events and activations uniting Global Citizens to learn, take action, and see world leaders commit to deliver a world without extreme poverty by 2030.
"All of a sudden, the footprint, it very much organically started to grow," [Global Citizen's Hugh] Evans, 34, tells Billboard. "We never want Global Citizen to be a night in Central Park -- it has to be a 365-day-a-year movement to eradicate extreme poverty."
Now, GC has released a Taylor Swift parody video for a cause. Bringing awareness to one of the most pressing issues in global development, the “Look What You Made Me Do” spoof draws attention to sanitation and toilet access.

Worldwide, 4.5 billion people lack access to safe and working toilets and sanitation, while 892 million people are forced to defecate outside in the open or into bodies of water.

Check out the Taylor Swift parody that has gone global here.
