See photos from the seventh annual Global Citizen Festival in NYC

The seventh annual Global Citizen Festival brought activists and artists together in Central Park on Saturday.

Janet Jackson, The Weeknd, Shawn Mendes, Cardi B, Janelle Monae and John Legend were among the performers who took to the main stage on the Great Lawn. 

The event was hosted by actor Hugh Jackman (“The Wolverine”) and his wife, actress Deborra-Lee Furness (“Correlli”). Festival organizers say the event’s goal is to call on Congress to resist proposed White House budget cuts, expose the maternal health crisis and eliminate or reduce the use of cash bail in New York State.
