The Cast Of Dazed And Confused Reunite To Support Voting In Texas

The Cast Of Dazed And Confused Reunite To Support Voting In Texas.

The cast of the 1993 film Dazed and Confused partnered up with March For Science and Voto Latino Foundation to promote and cause awareness on voting in Texas.

Cast members will be conducting an exclusive virtual table read to anyone who contributes to the get-out-the-vote initiatives in texas. 

Those who contribute will get invited to the livestream table- read event that will take place on Sunday October 11th at 7:30 p.m.. 

American stand-up comedian Patton Oswalt will moderate the live Question and Answers right after the table read.

The cast joining are Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck, Parker Posey, Jason London, Joey Lauren Adams, Adam Goldberg, Anthony Rapp, Rory Cochrane, Marissa Ribisi, Cole Hauser, Deena Martin, Esteban Powell, Christine Harnos, Wiley Wiggins, Michelle Burke, Mark Vandermeulen, Sasha Jenson, Jeremy Fox, Christin Hinojosa, Catherine Morris, Nicky Katt, and more to be announced. 

This comes after Texas decided not let their voters use Covid-19 as an excuse to vote by mail. 

It is very important to empower voting in support for every voter to be safe while getting their voices heard during this pandemic.

The fundraiser will go towards supporting the March for Science hashtag campaign #VoteForScience a science advocacy community that will help voters educate themselves on how to properly vote in person safe and sound.

 “As a Texan who is not allowed to vote by mail during a pandemic because of our state’s short-sighted election laws, it’s a powerful reminder that we need elected representatives who will embrace science and listen to public health officials,” said the President of March For Science, Matt Tranchin.

The Voto Latino Foundation will also be supported by the fundraiser. They educate the Latinx community across the country on issues affecting them. They empower them to go out to vote to get their voices heard. 

“With a pandemic raging during an election year, this country should be investing in every possible measure to keep voters safe,” said Danny Friedman, Managing Director of Voto Latino. “No one should be forced to choose between their health and their vote. Unfortunately, the state of Texas does not allow COVID-19 to be used as a reason for mail-in voting. Voto Latino Foundation has registered 215,964 voters in Texas, and each one of them will be making their voices heard in November, despite the state’s intransigence.” Register to vote here https://votolatino.org/article/register-to-vote/.
