More than 90 actors, musicians and artists have signed onto a letter encouraging Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) to run for president.
“Our country needs someone who will stand up for working families and take on the Wall Street banks and special interests that broke our economy,” the open letter released by the Ready for Warren and the Run Warren Run campaign reads.
Edward Norton, Susan Sarandon, Mark Ruffalo, Olivia Wilde, Chloë Sevigny and Michael Moore are some of the more prominent artists who put their names on the recent call to get Warren into the 2016 race.
Warren has repeatedly said she is not running for president.
According to the letter, the dozens of artists are concerned about the distribution of wealth and believe Warren is the candidate who can best champion their cause.
“Income inequality hurts us all — and we need someone who isn’t afraid to call out a political and economic system that is great for big corporations but fails America’s middle-class and working families,” the letter reads. “For too long everyday Americans have been hammered by this system while the wealthiest 1% benefits. That’s not the country we want to live in, and Senator Warren, we believe you’re the fighter to address the deeply serious problems we face.”
