Guardians of the Rainforest: A Global Celebration

Our annual gala, the largest fundraising event of our year, was a global celebration for all members of our alliance, from farmers and forest communities to companies—to supporters like you.

During difficult times such as these, it can be helpful to remember that people around the world are making real progress in changing broken systems. Watch the program and listen to the voices of the community leaders and youth activists who are paving the way for a better future:

  • Bonnie Wright | actor, director, and activist
  • Cameron Russell | model and activist
  • Kevin Patel | youth climate activist
  • Sahr Ngaujah | broadway actor
  • Vanessa Nakate | youth climate activist
  • Waris Ahluwalia | actor and designer
  • Walter Sangama Sangama | President of the Kichwa Indigenous Communities in San Martin, Peru
  • Music sets by DJ Rashida and Natasha Diggs
