In a new video for the group “RepresentUS” actress Jennifer Lawrence, known for her work in the “Hunger Games” claims there’s a “Radical Wing of the Republican Party that is actively dismantling American’s right to vote, because they don’t have the numbers to win otherwise without gerrymandering or shutting down hundreds of voting facilities within reach of minorities and specifically targeting and carving out people of color, they can’t win.”
“But this is cheating, and it is not Democracy,” she continues.
“There’s a law in the senate right now called the For the People act and it can reverse these anti-voting laws and it can stop billionaires from being able to buy our elections. It even says that all voting machines need to be made here in the U.S. , but it’s going to take a lot of pressure from us to get it to pass,” Lawrence pleads. “Let the politicians bicker and throw tantrums. Let’s just make sure they remember who they work for.”
LAST CHANCE: We only have HOURS left to raise the money we need to cover West Virginia in billboards demanding @Sen_JoeManchin votes YES on the #ForThePeopleAct. Chip in $5 or $20 right now before it's too late, and do your part to help save our democracy: https://t.co/Wb9WecGGDs pic.twitter.com/Z2Mb7G30VW

They also wrote “@Sen_JoeManchin is threatening to vote NO on the #ForThePeopleAct – even though 71% of his constituents support it!
By refusing to vote yes, Manchin is siding w/ the politicians who are attacking our right to vote & caving to special interests. We must keep the pressure up!”
