"You only get this many famous people together when the issue is one that truly matters to all of us, " state Taran Killam and Randall Park in a "Save the Day"video.

Hollywood stars who have joined Whedon in her cause include Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Leslie Odom Jr., Mark Ruffalo, and Julianne Moore.

"We are a short-form digital production company dedicated to the idea that voting is a necessary and heroic act. That every voice in this wonderfully diverse nation should, and must, be heard. That the only thing that can save democracy is the act that defines it. We are committed to fighting the apathy,cynicism, and honest confusion that keeps citizens from using their vote. And to reminding an increasingly out-of-touch and compromised set of representatives that they are answerable to the people they were hired to serve," reads a description of the organization on the "Save the Day" website.
