Amazon Studios Present ALL IN: THE FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY-50 State Initiative

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)

Lisa Rinna (Oregon)
AnnaSophia Robb (Illinois)

Sheryl Underwood (Arkansas)
Gabrielle Union (Nebraska)
Lindsey Vonn (Minnesota)
Bradley Whitford (Wisconsin)

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.

In coordination with the film, the filmmakers with support from foundations, private funders, and Amazon Studios are launching #ALLINFORVOTING a non-partisan social impact campaign aimed at educating and registering first-time voters, mobilizing communities to turn out to vote, and training citizens to know their rights and report voter suppression.

In addition to Fair Fight, key partners include: Advancement Project, Alliance for Youth Action, ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge, All Voting Is Local, Black Voters Matter, Campus Voter Project, Community Change, Election Protection, Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, HeadCount, Indivisible, Jewish Women International, Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, LUCHA, Movement Voter Project, National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), People for the American Way, Rock the Vote, Southern Poverty Law Center, Voto Latino Foundation, and When We All Vote.

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln " for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children.
