In wake of all the violence that has occurred, Hollywood’s elite has teamed up with President Barack Obama to issue one simple message: “We Can End Gun Violence.” It’s the latest attempt to raise support for actions to end gun violence.
Those who has teamed up with Obama includes Haute 100 listers Jennifer Aniston, Sofia Vergara, Amy Schumer as well as Kevin Bacon, Michael J. Fox, and Debra Messing, Spike Lee, among others. In the four-minute video you can see the celebs collectively saying, “We Can End Gun Violence.”
The campaign was put together by the nonprofit Everytown for Gun Safety, a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. The site reads, “Sometimes, ending gun violence can seem impossible. But this movement is defined by its resolve — and what we’ve proven over and over is that if we come together, we can save lives. Speak up for a future free from gun violence by lending your voice to the ‘We Can End Gun Violence’ video.” Everytown was formed in 2014, and at its core are three other groups: Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and the Everytown Survivor Network.
The nonprofit also has a link that allow viewers to add their voices to the video. The site reads, “Simply record yourself saying either ‘We Can’ or ‘End Gun Violence,’ and we’ll combine your video with messages from survivors, moms—even icons like President Obama, Julianne Moore, Spike Lee, Amy Schumer and Michael J. Fox.”
Other ways to get involved in the movement is to signup on the site and/or donate a minimum of $25 to the organization.
Earlier this year, entertainers gathered together to “Demand a Plan.” Jessica Alba, Jamie Foxx, Jason Bateman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jennifer Garner, Carey Mulligan, Beyoncé, Jeremy Renner, Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, John Legend, Nick Offerman, John Slattery, Selana Gomez, Jennifer Aniston, Jon Hamm, Chris Rock, Conan O’Brien and more are seen in the one-minute, 22 seconds long video encouraging Americans nationwide to take a stand against gun violence.
