Allstate welcomed the first-ever We Day in Illinois, hosting more than 15,000 students from across the state at the Allstate Arena. The insurance company is helping to bring We Day to U.S. cities and is the national sponsor of the We Act educational curriculum. We Day brings young people together to celebrate actions that they are taking on local and global issues such as poverty, homelessness, and bullying. The event is tied to the year-long We Act program, which offers educational resources, campaigns and support materials to help students turn the event's inspiration into sustained action. Taking the stage at We Day Illinois were world leaders, motivational speakers and entertainers.
