Bow Wow Will Walk Across Ameria To Help Get Out The Vote

ATLANTA, GA (September 29, 2008) - 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 a nonpartisan effort to encourage people, especially the youth, to participate in the contests happening this November and the political process overall.

Walk Across America will travel by foot and bus through several cities including Philadelphia, PA, Washington, D.C. and New York City (full schedule below) making stops at various locations including colleges, universities and radio stations. Bow Wow is working with Declare Yourself and Black Youth Vote, two non-partisan organizations that will be assisting with the registration efforts at each stop and helping to reinforce the importance of youth voter participation. Students and elected officials from both major parties will also be invited to take part in the efforts in each city.

Although he is only 21, 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," he says.

In addition to Walk Across America, 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, in which he co-stars alongside Forest Whitaker, 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.

The youth component of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation black campaign Black Youth Vote! is a national grassroots coalition committed to increasing political and civic involvement among Black men and women aged 18-35.
