Star Power: Martin Sheen's Fight for Justice

Martin Sheen is truly a living Hollywood legend. Yet despite his accomplishments as an artist, acting is not where his true passions lie. As a pacifist, humanitarian and tireless activist for peace and social justice, Martin has been arrested more than 60 times for public protests and acts of civil disobedience.

An Amazing We Day in Manitoba

I had a spectacular day at my second We Day event in Winnipeg which took place this past Tuesday, October 30, 2012. I was awed and humbled to be in the room with one of the greatest men who has ever lived: Former Soviet Union president Mikhail Gorbachev.

Reasons to Attend We Day in Winnipeg

As I look towards next week and my schedule of responsibilities and events, I am keeping Tuesday, October 30th clear so that I can attend We Day, coming again to Winnipeg. We Day is a movement of young people leading local and global, social change. These are the notes that I hastily scribbled at the last We Day event that I attended:
