The co-stars of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood on Friday released a PSA produced by NowThis Politics on DiCaprio’s Facebook page explaining the issues that will be decided Nov. 6.
“The future of our country will be decided this week. Elections don’t just matter when voting for president. This election might be the most consequential of our lifetime,” DiCaprio says in the video, citing issues like gun safety laws, clean water and air, immigration policy and health care.
Pitt, seated next to him, adds that the elections will determine the future of climate change, criminal justice reform, education funding, LGBTQ equality and voting rights. “We urge you to go to the polls by Nov. 6 and make your voice heard,” Pitt says. He additionally suggests viewers encourage voter turnout by volunteering at phone banks, texting and canvassing.
The two stars then tell viewers to visit TheLastWeekend.org to see how they can help.
At the end of an informational segment about what votes for this year’s midterms could decide, DiCaprio adds, “We the voters have the power to decide all of this.”
“And it starts now,” Pitt says, mentioning early voting. “Please, make your voice heard.”
Though standards were already high, the 2018 midterms have seen an impressive number of celebrity PSAs from the likes of Taylor Swift, Freeform stars, Jodie Foster, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Logan Browning and more.
