Rosario Dawson Trades Acting for Activism

Posted Wednesday July 23, 2008 7:46 PM GMT

With the 2008 Presidential Election creeping up quickly, Rosario Dawson is doing whatever it takes to get young latinos out to the polls with her non-profit Voto Latino organization.

The “Rent” actress was spotted at the “Crash the Parties 08” campaign yesterday in Washington DC doing her thing and looking beautiful in a sleeveless white dress with black and white heels.

She told press, "We're targeting the Latin youth vote. There's 18 million [people who] are eligible. But we are not showing that up in votes. So our numbers aren't counting. When you actually ... work with local organizations – that makes the biggest impact, and that's what I want to be a part of."

The Josie and the Pussycats babe continued, “The reason why I co-founded Voto Latino is because of my mom. It's because of my grandmother. It's because I was raised to do it yourself. You want that to be better? You do it yourself."

In addition to seeing her on her own Voto Latino tour, you can also see Rosario on the big screen as she has two movies hitting theaters this fall - Eagle Eye with Shia LaBeouf (September 26) and Seven Pounds with Will Smith (December 12).
