Get ready, 2020 elections are coming up soon! Michelle Obama unveils her all-star celebrity “voting squad” focused on pushing all Americans to head to the polls to vote in 2020.
The former First Lady says:
“Last year, we went big. Millions of new voters made their voices heard for the first time. Now the stakes are even higher,” Obama says in a video released Thursday as part of her When We All Vote campaign. That’s why I’ve been reaching out to some friends to expand my voting squad for the year ahead,” she adds in the clip, released almost exactly a year before the 2020 presidential election.”
The all-star voting squad includes some of our favorites like Tom Hanks, “Grey’s Anatomy” writer, TV producer Shonda Rhimes, singers, Selena Gomez, Faith Hill, Janelle Monae, soccer pro-Megan Rapinoe, Lin-Manuel Miranda and many more.
“It all starts with you. You’re the only person that can have that conversation with your family and your friends and your girlfriends and even with your community to get them registered and ready to vote,” the celebrities tell viewers.
Obama shared the good news via social media revealing her “voting squad.” To add, the “voting squad” features “Black-ish’s” Tracee Ellis Ross, Kerry Washington, NBA player Chris Paul, Rita Wilson, Youtube star Liza Koshy.
The campaign kicked off back in July of 2018 prior to midterm elections. The nonprofit organization’s mission was to “start a conversation on the responsibilities that we all have in shaping our country’s future through the ballot box.”
During a press release this Thursday, When We All Vote said:
“is calling on Americans to organize their own squads, volunteer groups aimed at getting friends, family, classmates and community registered and ready to vote.”
With the hard times going on, it is so important to vote and get your voice heard and out there.
