Apart from Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato, Common and Mark Ruffalo will also be present at the 'Vote With Us' virtual rally
Stars such as Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato, among other celebrities, will be joining a coalition of nonpartisan organizations, influencers, generational leaders and activists for the 'Vote With Us' virtual rally. A three-hour-long event, according to its website, aims to create the biggest voter turnout possible among young people and communities of color in the weeks leading up to the general election on November 3, 2020.
The virtual rally will focus on the four essential pillars of voting (why, how, when and where to vote), and also discuss how to vote safely in person. Early vote events in Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and Phoenix will also be highlighted, while organizations and influencers will take to social media to urge their fans to participate.
Guests and Performances
The virtual rally will feature a performance of 'Remember I Bleed' by Andra Day, and a cover of John Lennon’s 'Power to the People' by The War and Treaty. Apart from Bieber and Lovato, 'Vote With Us' will be attended by Common, Vic Mensa, Sherry Cola, Candice Dupree, Renee Montgomery, Common, Mark Ruffalo and the cast of the documentary 'Us Kids' – Emma González, David Hogg, Jaclyn Corin, Samantha Fuentes, Bria Smith, and Alex King.
Speaking about the rally, González, in a press statement said, "To vote is to harness your power, and we have to use the power that’s given to us. Don’t just vote for yourself, vote for every person; for every person whose basic rights are at risk, for every person who can’t vote because they are undocumented or incarcerated, for every person who is affected by the system and for every person who fought with everything they had just to give us the right to vote. Vote because you can. Vote because we haven’t always been able to."
