Bow Wow Will “Walk Across America” to Get Out the Vote
Atlanta, GA-- Superstar recording artist and actor Bow Wow will show his support for our nation's upcoming elections with a voter registration initiative, Walk Across America. Commencing in Atlanta, GA on October 1st, Walk Across America will take Bow Wow and other citizens who are excited about the 2008 elections to cities across the United States in an effort to encourage people, especially the youth, to participate in the political process.
Walk Across America will travel by foot and bus through several cities (full schedule below), making stops at various locations including colleges, universities and radio stations. Nonprofit organizations Declare Yourself and Black Youth Vote will be assisting with the registration efforts at each stop.
Bow Wow, who is launching his Follow the Leader foundation this year, felt that it was important for him to become personally involved in this historical election and to help motivate other young people to become engaged in the process. "It's important for the youth to participate because we're tomorrow's leaders. We need to make sure that our voices are heard and have a say in the decisions that will affect our lives and our country for years to come.”
Bow Wow is currently wrapping up work on his sixth album, New Jack City, Pt. II, which will hit stores in December, and on Christmas Day his latest film, Hurricane Season, will debut in movie theaters. This television season, Bow Wow can also be seen on HBO's popular series, Entourage, in the recurring role of Charlie, a stand-up comedian.
