America Ferrera has launched a new project that will document the rise of activism taking place in United States as of the result of the presidential election. Her venture is called Harness and was co-founded along with her husband Ryan Piers Williams, and Wilmer Valderrama, Remezcla reports.
Ferrera began Harness earlier this year, and has been extensively promoting it on various television programs. According to its Facebook page, Harness, in partnership with Hearst Magazines Digital Media, is “bringing together influencers from all communities to harness their power and create change.”
While on the Late Night with Seth Meyers last week, Ferrera said that Harness is about “convening with front line activists to hear authentic stories about what was happening in our communities.”

Here is Valderrama speaking out about the uprising in Venezuela:
Their latest activism is The #PledgeOfLiberation, a declaration of allegiance to each other and is part of the Women’s March movement.
“Together, activists around the country from every movement sector will unite on May 8 and hold demonstrations at in-district congressional offices and the offices of other elected officials, Women’s March, in partnership with ACLU People Power, United We Dream, Hollaback!, The Gathering for Justice, the National Lawyers Guild and other national and local partners, will take our resistance directly to our members of Congress.”
