What a statement! Jennifer Aniston, Amy Schumer, and more celebs came together to create a powerful video advocating against gun violence in the wake of the mass shootings that have occurred around the world. Watch the PSA here!
Celebrities from Jennifer Aniston to Amy Schumer to President Barack Obama are speaking out against gun violence in a new PSA for a nonprofit organization called Everytown for Gun Safety. Titled “We Can End Gun Violence,” the video is a response to the deadly shootings in the November Paris attacks and the Dec. 2 mass shooting in San Bernardino, California. With so many stars spreading one message, it’s certainly a compelling vid!
Jennifer is the first celeb to begin a chain of saying the phrase, “We can end gun violence,” set to some uplifting music that adds to the inspiring message of the video. Joining Jen in the fight against gun violence is the likes of Amy, Amanda Peet, Adam Scott, Michael J. Fox, Melissa Joan Hart, Julianne Moore, Sarah Silverman, Olivia Munn, Nick Offerman, Nigel Barker, Debra Messing, and Kevin Bacon. Can you say star-studded?!
About 30 seconds into the video, President Obama makes another powerful statement amidst the celebrities and other advocates. “When we come together, Americans can do anything,” he says. This is similar to the comments he made in his Oval Office address on Dec. 6, when he spoke out on terrorism and called for Americans to not turn against one another.
Both the PSA and President Obama’s address come after the devastating mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., that killed 14 and injured 21. Several celebrities expressed their grief over gun violence on Twitter after the tragic attack occurred, and it’s amazing to see so many more take part in such an important video like this PSA.
The video ends by encouraging people to add their voice to the advocating against gun violence. You can join Jen, Amy, President Obama, and all the other celebs by going on the website WeCanEndGunViolence.org.
