NEW YORK (AP) - Actress Julianne Moore is rallying the entertainment industry to help end gun violence.

Moore has announced the formation of the Everytown Creative Council.

She says it’s an effort to organize the creative community to amplify the message of the movement to end gun violence.

The 80 entertainers who have signed on include Alec Baldwin, Mindy Kaling, Yoko Ono, Jennifer Lawrence and Spike Lee.

Moore said Tuesday that she and her colleagues are saddened by “the daily increase of gun violence in our beautiful country.”

The Everytown Creative Council is affiliated with Everytown for Gun Safety.

That organization was founded by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The group aims to mobilize voters to support measures such as enhanced background checks for gun buyers.
