Jennifer Lawrence Inspires High School Activists Through Politics

Close

Jennifer Lawrence might be one of the busiest women in Hollywood, but she still finds time to focus on her other passions.

One of them being politics!

On Thursday morning, the actress surprised a group of high school juniors and seniors at Cleveland Heights High School in Ohio.

The three-time Golden Globe winner joined Represent.US, an anticorruption organization to speak about the country's politics and fixing democracy to students that are currently studying U.S. government.

This is Your Time

Lawrence joins a roster of actors and entertainers such as Elizabeth Banks, Sia, Kerry Washington and Orlando Bloom, who have also helped to spread awareness about corruption.

Londyn Crenshaw, a senior at Cleveland Heights High School stated he was so amazed at how informed Lawrence was about politics.

"It makes a big difference when people who are just 10 years older than us come to talk about political issues," Crenshaw stated.

Crenshaw further explained that the actress really left an impression on him.

"When she said, 'This is your time,' that really made me think. I have been involved with my community and will continue to be involved in grassroots activism because it's important," Crenshaw continued.

Lawrence Takes A Stand 

The Academy Award winner has always been open about politics and social justice. Recently, the Red Sparrow star, delved into the dramatic way she had envisioned confronting President Donald Trump in a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey for The Hollywood Reporter in December.

Winfrey even asked Lawrence if she would be prepared if the conversation were to really take place.

"Oh, I would definitely. Oh, my God, I've been waiting for this moment. I'll give you a hint - it's not nice. You wouldn't want me to say it to you," Lawrence said.

Lawrence revealed that politics has become something she has been fixated on recently.

The 27-year-old, explained that her passion for politics has turned into an obsession. She referred to it as never being settled with your home and your personal life, so you think of new ways to fix things.

In an interview with Vogue, Lawrence also revealed that she was disappointed to hear that Kim Davis, a Kentucky county clerk refused to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple and spoke out about Hollywood's pay gap.

In honor of her dedication Lawrence joined the Women's March in Los Angeles. She posed with a handmade sign along with Adele and Cameron Diaz that read, "A Woman's Place is in the Revolution."
