Since the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, celebrities have become very vocal about the dangers of gun violence. And this week, Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz and a host of other famous faces filmed an emotional PSA urging citizens to take a stand.
The 90-second spot calls viewers to visit DemandAPlan.org and sign a petition for stricter U.S. gun control laws. The site wants President Obama and Congress to ban assault weapons and require criminal background checks for those wanting to purchase arms.
And the star power behind the movement is very impressive. Besides Jessica and Cam, the promo features Victor Cruz, Selena Gomez, Beyonce, Chris Rock and Aubrey Plaza (just to name a few). They all list similar massacres to Newtown and pose the question, “how many more?”
It definitely makes for a strong argument and it’s proven to be an effective message. On Twitter, the #DemandAPlan hashtag has taken over several feeds, impacting millions of social network users across the country.
