We’ve seen the work of Declare Yourself before. Their message is aimed at voters in the US but the call to engage and get involved resonates just as strongly for us here. This time some big names are promoting the message to get involved including Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Aniston and Ellen DeGeneres (others whose faces I know but not their names!)
Some comments really stood out:
Halle Berry: “Don’t vote unless you care about healthcare”
Forrest Whitaker (corrected) “You could vote if you care about welfare, minimum wage”
Dustin Hoffman: ” …the economy, gay rights, abortion rights”..
Toby Maguire: “or your future, or the world”
The video goes on to tell people that they must be enrolled to vote. You can do that here.
Leonardo DiCaprio: “I mean, seriously, after this whole video – if you’re not going to vote, I don’t even know what to say. You know you have to vote.”
