‘Stranger Things’ star leads UNICEF call to ‘go blue’ for children’s rights on November 20, 2018

"Stranger Things" actress Millie Bobby Brown and other stars are urging people to wear or display the color blue on Tuesday, November 20 to show support for children's rights.

In a video released by the United Nations' children's agency UNICEF, Brown tells a succession of famous faces—actors Liam Neeson and Orlando Bloom, singer Dua Lipa, performance artists Blue Man Group, and Youtube star Lilly Singh—that it's "Code Blue."

"We need everyone to go blue!" Brown declares as Neeson bakes blue cupcakes, Bloom changes his name to "Bluem," and Lipa sings about the color blue.

"This World Children's Day, UNICEF is calling on kids and adults everywhere to Go Blue in support of children's rights. By Going Blue and signing our petition, you're telling the world that you believe in a brighter future for kids and helping UNICEF make that future a reality," she says in the video.

UNICEF's petition "to call on world leaders to commit to fulfilling the rights of every child and acknowledge that these rights are non-negotiable" can be found here.

"Your signature will be handed over to world leaders on 20 November 2019—the 30th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child—calling on them to commit to fulfilling the rights of every child now and for future generations," the UN agency said.
