and her fiance, Orlando Bloom
, have joined forces to send a message about American democracy
“You are our only hope,” Bloom says in a one-minute video from the nonpartisan anti-corruption group RepresentUs, pretending to send a message from the year 2055.
“The America you know will not exist in our future; democracy is dead; we have no voice; and the regime is watching our every move,” he warns.
Perry urges viewers to contact their representatives and support the For The People Act
, legislation that aims to expand voter registration and access. The House
passed the bill in March, but it has since stalled in the Senate
state legislatures across the United States
are enacting broad voter suppression
“It started when voter suppression ran rampant across America,” Perry says in the video, “when voting rights
bills died in the Senate, polling places closed, and we lost our right to vote.”
Bloom concludes the video by requesting that people tell Daisy, the couple's 9-month-old daughter, that "we love her."
