Rosario Dawson wants to get more Latino millennials involved in the election, particularly those who want to “shake the very foundation of this country.”
That’s how the “Daredevil” star puts it in a new “Crash the Parties” PSA, exclusively published on The Huffington Post above. The initiative, created by Voto Latino and Fuse, is looking for two aspiring Latino journalists to cover the Democratic and Republican National Conventions.
“Media diversity continues to be an issue in our country and this initiative will mobilize and bring two new young voices into the fold with a chance of representing their communities during such an important election year,” Dawson told HuffPost exclusively.
Dawson joins celebrities like America Ferrera, Fat Joe, Rosie Perez and Angie Martinez in the “Crash the Parties” initiative to find the Latino journalists that will cover the political party conventions for Fuse.
“I’m so excited to be partnering with Fuse in 2016 to Crash the Parties, a unique opportunity for anyone interested in politics and journalism,” Dawson, who is a co-founder of Voto Latino, said in a statement. “It’s a chance to be on the ground floor, reporting from the national conventions and talking to influencers about the issues that affect our community.”
