Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson are urging fans to get out and vote!
The Descendants co-stars will be among many stars who are taking part in the virtual Rock The Vote #DemocracySummer2020 kickoff event and concert THIS Thursday (June 18).
“I am so honored to be part of Democracy Summer 2020 and the Rock the Vote virtual event! Our country and democracy are at a critical tipping point,” Dove said in a statement. “Now more than ever we have the opportunity to enact change by combating systemic racism, the climate crisis and the regular assault on our basic human rights as American citizens. We must elect leaders on a local and national level that will fight for the reform that our country needs. We as Gen Z and Millennials make up about 40% of all voters in this country. Our influence, our power, our VOICES are loud. Let’s make them heard!”
“our vote is our voice. together, let’s rock the vote. see you thursday,” Sofia wrote on Twitter about the event.
Katy Perry and the Black Eyed Peas are co-headlining the event, along with other performances and appearances from Lucy Hale, Alex Wolff, Ne-Yo, Logan Browning, MAX, Skylar Astin, Rosario Dawson and more!
The virtual event to help kick off Democracy Summer 2020, is an “effort led by Rock the Vote in partnership with Voto Latino Foundation, When We All Vote, March For Our Lives and many more, to register and mobilize 200,000 new voters over the summer.”
It will also “highlight the importance of supporting Black Lives and young people’s incredible power to organize and create change. More than 4-million young people turn 18 this year and will be eligible to vote for the first time.”
During the live stream, funds will be raised for Black-led and focused organizations like the National Action Network, Community Justice Action Fund, and more.
