A new public service announcement is using TV lawyers to recruit real lawyers in an effort to ensure a fair election on Nov. 3.
We The Action, an organization that connects volunteer lawyers with nonprofit organizations, released a public service announcement Wednesday on YouTube featuring actors who’ve played lawyers.
Notable stars in the video include Viola Davis who portrayed Annalise Keating on How to Get Away with Murder; Julianna Margulies from The Good Wife; Dulé Hill and Gina Torres of Suits; Raúl Esparza of Law & Order: SVU; and Paul Giamatti from Billions, just to name a few.
The We The Action Election 2020 Task Force released the PSA, which shows the TV lawyers asking real attorneys to help staff remote voter hotlines, serve as poll workers and observers, and if needed, support recount efforts.
Margulies says in the video, “It is essential that we do everything we can to make sure that everyone who is eligible can cast their vote.”
The PSA directs lawyers who might be able to help, to the We The Action website for resources and information on how to get involved.
