Chris Rock joins Obama’s Community College Initiative

Louis C.K. and Chris Rock are getting serious about one of President Obama’s top causes.

The comedians are teaming up with other celebrities on a campaign, titled Heads Up America, promoting Obama’s free community college initiative. The White House released a brief public service announcement on Wednesday featuring Louis C.K., Rock, comic actor and former Obama staffer Kal Penn and actress Amandla Stenberg.

Obama also appears in a separate 90-second video plugging his plan, which would offer free community college tuition to more than 9 million Americans. “A higher education shouldn’t mean taking on a lifetime of debt,” he says. “It’s hard to get ahead when you start so far behind. That’s why I want to make two years of community college education free for responsible students.” The videos are part of a multi-day effort by the White House to sell the program, which is stalled in Congress.
