Julia Roberts and Hugh Jackman are giving up control of their social media accounts!

Starting on Thursday (May 21), stars will be handing over their social accounts to COVID-19 experts as part of the #PassTheMic campaign.

Experts including Dr. Anthony Fauci will use the stars’ platforms to share facts and science-driven perspectives on the pandemic. The campaign will continue for several weeks and feature frontline workers as well as health, economic, and other experts.

Other stars that will be taking part in the campaign include Shailene Woodley, Danai Gurira, Millie Bobby Brown, Penelope Cruz, Rainn Wilson, Rita Wilson, David Oyelowo, Connie Britton, and Sarah Jessica Parker.

“Beating the virus means listening to the experts and following the science, data and facts to get ahead of it. This impressive group of talent and experts from around the world will put a spotlight on the need for a global response to this pandemic,” ONE Campaign President and CEO, Gayle Smith said in a statement. “We need global cooperation and action to fight this pandemic – especially for the people, communities, and countries that are least able to withstand the shock. Because none of us are safe until all of us are safe.”
