NAACP TEAMS UP WITH JULIANNE MOORE, KRISTEN BELL, SEVERAL OTHERS
The NAACP has teamed up with Tommy Oliver and Adam Platzner of Confluential Content for #ITakeResponsibility, a new campaign launched to encourage white people to call out racism.
Julianne Moore, Kristen Bell, Sarah Paulson, Aaron Paul, Aly Raisman, Bethany Joy Lenz, Bryce Dallas Howard, Debra Messing, Ilana Glazer, Justin Theroux, Kesha, Mark Duplass, Piper Perabo and Stanley Tucci are among the celebs who’ve agreed to participate.
“It’s critical that we understand and accept that racism is a white people problem…a problem that, collectively, we need to look to ourselves to fix,” Platzner, Partner and Vice Chairman, Confluential Content tells Deadline. “I had never seen it quite that way before. Recent events in this country have shown us that we need to take a different approach if we’re to be impactful. That’s what led me to create this effort.”
