The PSA's urge individuals to “shift the power to the people” and help to empower everyone to create sustainable, lasting change in their communities and countries. Celebrity volunteers including “Twilight” series stars: Alex Meraz, Gil Birmingham, Boo Boo Stewart, Julia Jones, and Justin Chon, as well as other celebrities Q'orianka Kilcher, Quddus, Dawn Olivieri, and Danielle Bisutti. This project is one of the UNITED GLOBAL SHIFT project's that Chaske is championing.
