Rashida Jones Urges American Citizens To Vote In Order To Make A Real Change

Rashida Jones, who is well known for the role ‘Karen Filippelli’ on the NBC comedy series ‘The Office,’  made a forceful statement through Instagram and called American citizens to vote to fight against systemic racism.

Regarding the upcoming election in Kentucky on June 23, ‘Parks and Recreation’ actress wrote:

“Many people have asked how to do the work of identifying systemic racism and how to participate in meaningful change

There is a primary election coming up in Kentucky this Tuesday, June 23.”

The ‘Celeste and Jesse Forever’ co-star spoke of ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement and demanded justice for Breonna Taylor, who was killed by a police officer:

“What’s happening in Kentucky is a perfect storm of America’s most pressing issues: Breonna Taylor was murdered in Louisville, KY, and STILL there has been no justice. Voter suppression is real — Jefferson County has ONE polling place for 600,000 people. That is not a typo. 1 polling place. For 600k people. *Coincidentally*, this county is where 50 percent of Black Kentuckians live.”

Then Rashida Jones mentioned that voting is the only way to make a real change around the nation:

“Spread the word. Donate. Volunteer. This is how we hold those with power accountable. This is how we see real change.”

Many people have asked how to do the work of identifying systemic racism and how to participate in meaningful change… There is a primary election coming up in Kentucky this Tuesday, June 23. What’s happening in Kentucky is a perfect storm of America's most pressing issues: Breonna Taylor was murdered in Louisville, KY, and STILL there has been no justice. Voter suppression is real — Jefferson County has ONE polling place for 600,000 people. That is not a typo. 1 polling place. For 600k people. *Coincidentally*, this county is where 50 percent of Black Kentuckians live. Also, Mitch McConnell’s got to go. In his place, we have a chance to elect Charles Booker (@booker4ky) as senator, whose work, politically and on the ground, is in alignment with the change I want to see. Please tell your people about this voting injustice. Spread the word. Donate. Volunteer. This is how we hold those with power accountable. This is how we see real change.
