Hollywood celebrities, including Mindy Kaling, Kumail Nanjiani, Liza Koshy, and Lilly Singh, are teaming up for a South Asian Block Party fundraiser to help stuff the campaign coffers for Joe Biden three weeks from the presidential election.
The event is aimed at convincing Americans with Pakistani, Indian, and Sri Lankan heritage to sign onto the Biden 2020 campaign. The streaming program will feature comedians, musicians, and lectures about topics that might appeal to Americans of South Asian heritage.
For his part, Eternals actor Kumail Nanjiani — who was born in Karachi, Pakistan — said he is proud to participate in the online fundraiser.
