*A video of strangers in Philadelphia who broke out in dance while waiting in line to vote has gone viral.
The clip drew attention from a number of Hollywood’s biggest names, including Wanda Sykes.
“I see you #Philly! We know winning this jawn is crucial,” Sykes tweeted.
Filmmaker Ava DuVernay added, “I love us so much. We rise. Always.”
Comedian Sarah Cooper said it all with her tweet, “Voter suppression but make it fun.”
“This is #JoyToThePolls created by @NelStamp @paolamendoza @sarahsophief and so many other wonderful organizers in an effort to bring celebration and fun to long voting lines. I love this SO MUCH,” explained actress Amber Tamblyn.
The group Election Defenders Launched the “Joy To The Polls” as a way to bring fun to those waiting in line to vote. Election Defenders describes themselves as a group that “will be working to provide safe supports for voting (such as PPE and water), and election and voter defense, de-escalating white supremacist intimidation tactics and signaling to a network of groups and lawyers if and where trouble breaks out.”
