A group of celebrities have come together in a new PSA to urge the Republican members of the Electoral College to change the outcome of the 2016 Election and deny Donald Trump the Presidency.  The celebrities that take part in the video are Martin Sheen, Debra Messing, James Cromwell, BD Wong, Noah Wyle, Freda Payne, Bob Odenkirk, J. Smith Cameron, Michael Urie, Moby, Mike Farrell, Loretta Swit, Richard Schiff, Christine Lahti, Steven Pasquale, Dominic Fumusa, Emily Tyra, and Talia Balsam.  Martin Sheen kicks off the video saying, “Republican voters of the Electoral College, this message is for you.”  Debra Messing says that Trump “lacks the necessary stability” to be President of the United States.  The celebs go on to urge the Electoral College members to vote for anyone other than Trump: “I’m not asking you to vote for Hillary Clinton…Any eligible person, no matter which party they belong to.”

The celebs then address the EC directly: “You have the position, the authority, and the opportunity to go down in the books as an American hero who changed the course of history.”

Watch the whole PSA below.

This video seems to model the Joss Whedon directed PSAs during the campaign in which celebs such as Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson said don’t vote for Trump.  You can check out The WANNA’s previous post on all the 2016 political PSAs here.

The WANNA wants to hear from you!  Are you happy with the 2016 Election results?  Or do you agree with these celebrities about a revote against Trump?

Amber Heard recently partnered with #GirlGaze Project to release a domestic violence PSA.  The PSA comes after Heard’s very public divorce from Johnny Depp earlier this year.  In May 2016, Heard brought domestic abuse allegations against Depp, but eventually dropped the suit in August when Depp settled for $7 million.

In the PSA, Heard gets emotional while revealing personal details about her own experience with domestic violence.  She shares the thoughts that went through her own head during the abuse, such as “How is this happening to me?”  Heard addresses the fact that abuse can happen “in your home behind closed doors.”  Heard fights back tears at one point when she says,  “telling someone safe is the beginning of choosing yourself.” Heard speaks directly to abuse survivors, saying, “You are not alone.”

In the video, Heard recognizes the “unique opportunity” she has to bring awareness to the issue from being in the public eye.  Heard encourages the media and people in general to change the way we talk about domestic violence.  She implores viewers to, “Speak up.  Raise your voice.”

Watch the full PSA below to hear the rest of Heard’s moving words.
