Up with People Live on Tour 2019
Last year's success made Up with People decide to come back to Grand Island with their international group of 100 young adults. Up with People is a global education organization that empowers young people to be positive agents of change in their communities and the world. Every six months we gather 100 young adults from 15 different countries to make an impact together. Through our unique blend of music, social action, and international travel, we impact communities for the better while providing youth the knowledge and experience they need for today’s complex global environment. For more than 50 years Up with People has been breaking down cultural barriers and enhancing understanding to help create a more hopeful, trusting and peaceful world. Learn more at www.upwithpeople.org The show is a mix of international songs and dances, fun medleys to interact with the audience and Up with People original songs that talk about topics we find important.

We will have craft/vendors, a motorcycle run and our annual walk. We will have food, family activities, as well as a FREE Remedy Drive Concert (concert starting at 6pm, at the band stand). We have many things planned for this, but most importantly, we want to connect with our community and bring awareness about Human Trafficking. We believe that a conversation needs to begin and it stars with us. Our community needs to be aware of what is happening around us and how it's effecting each one of us.
