On June 2 HBO, MTV, and a host of celebrities will be joining Michael Bloomberg and other pro-gun control groups to watch participating mayors proclaim “Gun Violence Awareness Day” in their cities.

According to PRNewsWire, participating celebrities–aka, “cultural influencers”–include:

Julianne Moore, Russell Simmons, Sarah Silverman, Michael Stipe, Patti Smith, Aasif Mandvi,Alyssa Milano, Padma Lakshmi, John Hodgman, Amanda Peet, Perez Hilton, Melissa Joan Hart, Tiffani Thiessen, Tunde Adebimpe of TV On The Radio, Rise Against, Mario Batali, Anti-Flag, Nigel Barker, Grace Weber, Jon Foreman, Judith Hill, Amber Coffman of Dirty Projectors, Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees and Thomas Roberts of MSNBC.

On December 29, 2014, Breitbart News reported that Julianne Moore became the celebrity face for Everytown for Gun Safety’s year-end donations drive. CTNews reported that Moore wrote a letter asking possible contributors to cough up “$5 or more” to “stop gun violence” and “save lives.”
