Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day Takes Over The National Mall

The sun is shining and temperatures are forecast to hit summery highs for Saturday's Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day on the National Mall in Washington. The event, which organizers hope more than 200,000 people will attend, was put together to highlight the role ordinary citizens can play in ending extreme poverty around the world. It features a star-studded free concert, with the likes of My Morning Jacket and Mary J. Blige performing, as well as high-profile speakers ranging from Don Cheadle to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
