Seahawks Support WE Day Seattle

WE, the global movement that encourages individuals to come together to create positive social change, is awarding the work young people have done in their communities throughout the last year with a unique celebration Thursday at Seattle's Key Arena.

WE Day Seattle features a star-studded lineup of speakers and performers. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, who helped bring the first-ever WE Day celebration to the United States back in 2013, kicked off this year's event.

"Six years ago, right here in Key Arena, WE Day came to America for the first time and I know now there's a million or more students that are so active in WE Day, they're doing it across the country," Carroll said. "You're changing hearts and minds from coast to coast.

"Now, you all know more than ever the power of young people is crucial to bringing about a real social reconciliation. This is big time now. You guys are the ones that are going to carry this. We're all in it for the long haul. Our adults, they need you. They need your help. They need your guidance. We're all going to hang in here and do this thing together.

"It's not easy changing the world, but you can do it, and you are doing it; one person at a time, one day at a time. So if we're going to do this together we've got to stay strong, we've got to keep pushing, we've got to keep competing to do it right day after day after day.

"This is a great day of celebration in your honor," he added.
