AMAZON STUDIOS ANNOUNCES 50 STATE INITIATIVE #ALLINFORVOTING TO GET OUT THE VOTE WITH INFLUENTIAL AMBASSADORS EACH ADOPTING A STATE TO EDUCATE VOTERS

Amazon Studios announces a new digital initiative aimed at educating and engaging American voters by focusing on regionally-targeted activity. Inspired by the Amazon Original movie "All In: The Fight for Democracy", a riveting examination of our nation’s history of voting and voter suppression, the initiative will assemble a team of 50 influential actors, artists, musicians, athletes, and newsmakers to use their platform to educate voters and mobilize participation in the upcoming national and regional elections. 

To date, the following #AllInForVoting State Ambassadors have signed on, with more soon to be confirmed:

Elizabeth Banks (Massachusetts)
Connie Britton (Tennessee)
Don Cheadle (Missouri)
Katie Couric (Virginia)
Viola Davis (Rhode Island)
Patrick Dempsey (Maine)
Melissa Etheridge (Kansas)
Kaitlyn Farrington (Idaho)
Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Montana)
Taraji P. Henson (Washington, D.C.)
Ashley Judd (Kentucky)
Zach LaVine (Washington) 
Seth MacFarlane (Connecticut)
Janelle Monáe (South Carolina)
Offset (Georgia)
Patton Oswalt (Iowa)
Aubrey Plaza (Delaware)
Billy Porter (Pennsylvania)
Travis Rice (Wyoming)
Lisa Rinna (Oregon)
AnnaSophia Robb (Illinois)
Rajon Rondo (Florida)
Sheryl Underwood (Arkansas)
Gabrielle Union (Nebraska) 
Lindsey Vonn (Minnesota)
Bradley Whitford (Wisconsin)
Bowen Yang (Colorado)

Each participant will serve as an #AllInForVoting State Ambassador, focusing on an assigned state, and will amplify key messages and information such as registration deadlines, how and when to vote, vote early and vote by mail updates, and concerns of voter suppression tactics in the state.

Seeking to highlight the importance of accurate, local information and overcome factual misrepresentations, the digital activations will range from online conversations and short-form content to social media posts, sharing vital knowledge about how audiences in each state can vote.

In the wake of an unprecedented public health crisis, the initiative’s goal is to provide resources to ensure that all Americans are equipped with the information they need about how to make their voices heard at the ballot box this November without compromising their safety.

Directed by Liz Garbus & Lisa Cortés

Produced by Liz Garbus, Lisa Cortés, Dan Cogan and Stacey Abrams
Featuring Stacey Abrams 

In anticipation of the 2020 presidential election, ALL IN: THE FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY examines the often overlooked, yet insidious issue of voter suppression in the United States. The film interweaves personal experiences with current activism and historical insight to expose a problem that has corrupted our democracy from the very beginning. With the perspective and expertise of Stacey Abrams, the former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, the documentary offers an insider’s look into laws and barriers to voting that most people don’t even know are threats to their basic rights as citizens of the United States.
