Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyoncé Knowles, Reese Witherspoon, Ellen DeGeneres and Selena Gomez are just a few of the list of celebrities who have used their status for good by collaborating with ‘Demand A Plan.’
The bevy of famous faces are fronting a campaign to ban gun violence and to prevent people from being able to purchase guns. It come sin the wake of last week’s massacre at ‘Sandy Hooks Elementary School‘ in the town of Newton, Connecticut. Last Friday Adam Lanza shot dead 20 children and 6 adults before turning the gun on himself, killing not only teachers, but also a number of pupils.
In the short clip, they ask: “How many more… colleges, classrooms, movie theatres, houses of faith, shopping malls, street corners. Enough…. Demand a plan. Right now, as a mom, as a dad, as a friend, as a husband, as a wife, as an American, as a human being, for the children of ‘Sandy Hook‘ demand a plan. No more lists of names. It’s not too soon. It’s too late. Now is the time, before we all know someone who loves someone on that list. No more lists. No more who they might have been, if we had just done something yesterday. It’s time. We can do better than this. It’s time for our leaders to act. Demand a plan right now. Right now. You can demand it. Enough.”
