Celebs are joining forces to put an end to gun violence once and for all.

Actors, musicians, athletes, and comedians banded together in a video demanding a plan to end gun violence.  More than a dozen celebrities participated in the video which was created by demandaplan.org

In the powerful black-and-white video, famous faces like Chris Rock, Amy Poehler, Cameron Diaz, Will Ferrell, and Ellen DeGeneres list some of the worst shootings in U.S. history. They urge Americans to come together as human beings, and for the sake of the children of Sandy Hook put an end to gun violence.

The video’s release comes on the heels of Friday’s NRA press conference, in which the organization blasted Hollywood for promoting violence.
