News & Politics

Amid the Israel-Hamas war, the website artists4ceasefire.org features a message pressing President Joe Biden to advocate for a ceasefire. The list of names below the message includes America Ferrera, Alyssa Milano, Andrew Garfield, Channing Tatum, Dua Lipa, Macklemore, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Moore, Quinta Brunson, Wanda Sykes, Jon Stewart, and various other people.

“We come together as artists and advocates, but most importantly as human beings witnessing the devastating loss of lives and unfolding horrors in Israel and Palestine,” the message states. “We ask that, as President of the United States, you call for an immediate de-escalation and ceasefire in Gaza and Israel before another life is lost.”

“We urge your administration, and all world leaders, to honor all of the lives in the Holy Land and call for and facilitate a ceasefire without delay – an end to the bombing of Gaza, and the safe release of hostages. Half of Gaza’s two million residents are children, and more than two thirds are refugees and their descendants being forced to flee their homes. Humanitarian aid must be allowed to reach them,” the message declares.

Some leftist lawmakers have been advocating for Biden to push for a ceasefire.
