A Hollywood actress and social activist teamed together to encourage voters in Benton Harbor to take time to go to the polls.

Jane Fonda teamed up with Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spoke on Saturday, Oct. 27, about Michigan’s “one fair wage,” gerrymandering and social issues, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at ABC 57.

“Our votes literally matter so much right now because our lives depend on it,” Patrisse Cullors told ABC 57.

“We are going to mobilize and get out the vote, particularly in communities of color to support one fair wage which means raising the minimum wage to $12 and including tipped workers so that on top of the $12 they get tips,” Fonda told ABC 57.

The two also rallied alongside actress Taraji P. Henson in Detroit on Sunday.
