Latino stars Benicio Del Toro and Selena Gomez are uniting, but not for a Hollywood flick.
Using social media, the duo is joining celebrities like Edward Norton, Sarah Silverman, Amanda Seyfried, Zac Efron, Ellen DeGeneres, Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in a video that aims to raise awareness on the importance of voting in the upcoming presidential elections.
The two and a half minute long Vote 4 Stuff video, which debuted on Monday, asks voters to post tweets, short videos and photos about the concerns they feel deserve presidential attention.
“This is one of the most important elections of our lifetime,” said DiCaprio, whose production company, Appian Way, is behind Vote 4 Stuff. “We are using the power of social media throughout the Vote 4 Stuff campaign to incite bipartisan conversation around real issues, encourage registration and voting in November,” he added.
Some of the concerns these stars expressed include jobs, marriage equality, climate change, foreign policy, reproductive rights, worker’s rights, teacher salaries, education and immigration.
