Woody Belfort, accessibility and equality advocate

My ultimate goal is to change the way society sees people living with disabilities. So many people unconsciously judge others’ limits because of their abilities. But it’s up to us to define our own limits and then defy them anyway! It’s up to us to choose what we want to accomplish, even when the idea seems out of this world.

Margaret Trudeau, Celebrated Canadian, author and mental health advocate

At WE Day, we talk about being givers, doers and world changers. This past summer I had the extraordinary opportunity to visit WE’s development projects in Kenya where I saw firsthand the huge difference WE is making in the lives of people in rural Kenya. I saw firsthand the power of education, especially when it came to clean water.

So look around you now and think about how this crowd, this amazing confabulation of people can work together, can become a collective, can make art and science and society more creative, more inclusive, more amazing. See yourself as those artists.
